This past February we celebrated the National Children’s Dental Health Month with a series of STEM activities and challenges.
We don’t teach enough about dental health or health in general. Even though we need to do a better job, teaching and being examples. During our dental health check up week, it was shocking to find out that a large number of students had excessive number of cavities, especially for their young age.
Dental problems can lead to numerous other health problems, yet the prohibitive cost and the lack of information contributes to the growing problem.
Our STEM activities looked at relationship between acidity of every day foods/drinks and dental health.
