Local dental office celebrates Kids Dental Health Month with a twist
CORNING, N.Y (WENY) -- All week long Corning Dental Associates will be celebrating kids dental health with a twist. The office will be accepting donations of new or slightly used books for the "Bright Red Bookshelf". Any kid who bring in a book will get a long sleeve shirt, an ice skating pass and a battery toothbrush. For dentists at the office, they hope this will help kids realize the importance of brushing your teeth.
"The goal of this event is just to bring awareness to kids dental health and we're encouraging all of our patients to come in and just bring awareness so that it's really important to keep kids teeth healthy and clean," said Corning Dental Associates dentist and partner, Dr. Lynne Meriwether.
The event is open to any child who'd like to donate a book. But supplies are limited, so you'll want to get there fast.
