Studio City Dental Group Offers to Visit Elementary Schools to Promote Good Pediatric Dental Health

September 25, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Studio City Dental Group offers to visit elementary schools in Studio City, CA for the purpose of promoting good pediatric dental health. They are offering to talk to local area students about proper oral hygiene routines during the upcoming Fall season.

"We invite interested school administrators to contact us now, so that we can get them into our Fall schedule," stated Dr. Jonathan Gidan, a pediatric dentist at Studio City Dental Group. "The importance of addressing good oral hygiene with children cannot be understated. Childhood gum disease is preventable, but it is more common than we would like to see," explained Dr. Gidan.

When the staff of the pediatric department of the practice visits elementary schools, they bring along with them an oversized toothbrush and stuffed toys with teeth. They use these props to create an enjoyable, easy-to-understand demonstration for the kids. In addition to talking to the children to explain the importance of starting good oral hygiene practices early in life, the practice provides goody bags and toothbrushes for each child.

Dr. Gidan has been actively volunteering in the community for several years, donating free dental examinations, teeth cleanings, and certificates for free x-rays to children in need at Laurel Hall School as well as other local schools. In a continuing effort to stress the importance of good oral hygiene for overall well-being, he also donates toothbrushes, toothpaste, and dental floss to area charities.

Dr. Gidan and Dr. Marvin Rosenberg, orthodontist at Studio City Dental Group, are offering a Fall Special for new patients that includes a dental examination, cleaning with topical fluoride, necessary x-rays, as well as a clinical orthodontic examination. This special offering is valid for children up to age 12 for $25.00 and ends October 30, 2013.
