ADVENTURES OF THE CARE MOBILE
We now realize it's not SCARY. The dentists love the hugs from kids. They enjoy helping kids keep their teeth healthy. There are 3 women and 1 man to help the kids.
They all have a wonderful career. They have lots of supplies only for teeth. Some people don’t like dentists. Some do. It took 10 years to get the care mobile. Oh my goodness! Ten years. That’s a lot of years. I think that it's really hard to be a pro at being a dentists.
They wear masks and gloves so they don’t spread germs. If you ever wonder where the dentist smell comes from it comes from the chemicals they use to wipe down their counters so they don’t spread germs.
We asked a college student who was a patient how you would rate the dental care and she said, “A perfect ten.”
The Care Mobile is here because our school qualifies. The Ronald McDonald Health program took about ten years to get the Care Mobile. The Care Mobile only goes in western North Dakota. They go where the lunch program has 50% or more free lunches.
If you have healthy teeth you can have a healthy body. A lot of kids have sick teeth.
The dentist and hygienists help keep the teeth of kids from 0 to 21 years old healthy. They paint fluoride on your teeth to make the minerals better. They take pictures of your mouth to see if you have cavities or not. Then let you see the picture and they try to take care of your cavities. If it is your baby teeth, you don’t need to worry about it. If you eat tooooo much candy you'll get bad teeth.
