OHI Event @ New Paradigm Loving Academy

Time: 11/8 Tuesday 1 – 1:30pm
Location: 1000 Lynn St, Detroit, MI 48211
Detroit Mercy ASDA Outreach decided to dedicate our time to visit local elementary schools every month. Our second monthly visit to New Paradigm Loving Academy took place on November 8th, 2016. Giving oral hygiene instructions and dental education, and handing out toothbrushes and toothpastes can vastly improve oral health in our communities. Many children cannot go see dentists and share one toothbrush per household not only due to economic reasons, but simply because no one ever told them the importance of brushing, flossing, and visiting dentists for preventative reasons. Many children have toothbrushes that are too frayed and no longer functional. As dental students, we try to do what we can on our part to promote oral health. Ms. Marsh, the principal, described our student run sessions as “excellent.”
