When you’re asked to spend an afternoon with a jaguar and hundreds of enthusiastic kids it’s hard to resist! Dr. Huszti had a ball volunteering at Johnson Elementary for their annual fundraiser.

Along with local running legend Doug Goodhue they led the kids in pre-run stretches and offered a quick lecture on healthy diet choices. Huszti dental care is proud to be a sponsor and help promote healthy lifestyle choices.

Judging from all the smiles the day was a big success!

Not everything we do to keep people healthy takes place in the office. We do a lot of outreach to spread the word about dental hygiene. In February Dr’s. Bill and Anna Huszti made presentations to their daughters’ classes at Johnson Elementary. Kindergartners in Mrs. Denny and Ms. Ethier’s class, including Sophia Huszti, and first and second-graders in Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Hess and Mrs. Kokowicz class, where Olivia Huszti is a student. they learned habits they can start to keep their mouth healthy. In addition, hygienist Dawn spoke to her son Jacob’s first-grade class at Creekside Elementary.

Getting the message out about good oral hygiene is important. And it’s especially important to get it to children so they develop good dental habits early in life. That’s why the doctors and hygienist Dawn reached out to some students in February, National Dental Health Month. Dr. Huszti put together a high-tech presentation which included music and Power Point animation for the Friends Preschool in Milford and Johnson elementary Kindergarten classes where their daughter’s Sophia and Olivia attend.

One of the highlights was when Doctors Huszti and Chong-Huszti, their heads superimposed on the bodies of Superman and Wonder Woman, fought and destroyed the Cavity Creeps.

Dawn Grider shared oral hygiene tips with kids at two different schools. After one of the talks, the thank you notes showed Dawn just what the kids learned:One child said he learned he has to brush ALL his teeth. Another said she learned to brush her gums. Another said he now knows he has to brush two times a day. Dawn plays a game with the kids “Good Food or Bad Food?” One child discovered apples are good, fruit roll-ups are not. “I didn’t have this experience when I was a kid,” Dawn said. “It’s good to hear the kids learn something,” because starting healthy habits early is always better, she said. And they always do, even if they get the details wrong: One mother told Dawn her daughter told her after Dawn’s talk that the HAD to buy dental floss immediately and that they need to brush for two hours!

Olivia’s little sister Sophia also helped with the instruction which featured the proper way to brush teeth, an introduction to a dental office, and a Good Food, Bad Food game. In addition to some good advice, the 70 pre-kindergarten students received electric toothbrushes.

Dawn spent a morning at All-Stars Preschool, giving advice and tips on keeping teeth healthy to 30 youngsters. Her best memory came afterward, when she drops by and the children all show her a big smile and say “I brushed my teeth this morning!”
