Giving Kids Something to Smile About

Wayne Community College Dental Hygiene and Dental Assisting students participated in the annual Give Kids A Smile Dental Sealant Day with the Wayne County Dental Society and NC Oral Health Section of the NC Division of Public Health on Friday, March 11.

More than 80 Spring Creek Elementary School 3rd and 4th graders left the WCC Dental Clinic with good information, decay-resistant teeth, a bag of dental gear (including superhero and princess battery-operated brushes!), and big smiles.
