Immaculate Heart of Mary
Toothy had fun at Immaculate Heart of Mary (IHM), where a young lass asked, "Why do we have gums?" What a great question! The function of our gums is to cover the bone. Together, healthy gums and bone support the teeth to keep them strong.
The children at Odyssey Charter Lower School loved seeing and hugging Toothy. After hearing about the differences between healthy and unhealthy snacks, one child commented, "My mom should hear this when she packs my lunch!”
Toothy went back to Mt. Pleasant to visit 1st grade classes. Pictured next to Toothy in the red shirt is Jonas Wahl, the son of our own Dr. Jean and Dr. Pat.
