Dental Health Week
This week we have dentists from the Health Authority (Gesundheitsamt) visiting our lower school students from Kindergarten, Grade 1 and Grade 4 for the first time. The dental examination is a main part of the school health care and a must in German schools. That is a great way to remind students in a child-friendly way of the importance of oral health by demonstrating good toothbrushing techniques or explaining the effects of sugar in our daily food.
Most of our Kindergarten students have their first dental examination this week and it is very comfortable having a dentist in a familiar environment.
