Hillside first graders learn healthy habits to keep teeth clean
and strong

As part of our first grade health curriculum, first graders have been learning about good dental health habits. On Tuesday, Feb. 23, Lisa Kaminski, dental health educator fro​m Capital District Pediatric Dentistry, paid a visit to the first graders at Hillside Elementary School.

Students learned about good tooth brushing habits, with help from Clyde, a horse puppet. They also discussed healthy snack options, and how cutting down on the number of between-meal snacks can help reduce tooth decay. At the end of the program, students received brand new toothbrushes and were eager to try them out.
