A big thanks to Johnson and Johnson for sponsoring the free dental screenings again this year. The screenings took place at the Bella Vista, Rogers and McKinney Clubs and were available to every Boys and Girls Club member. 388 children received the free screenings this year. Twelve registered dental hygienists performed the screenings and taught the children the importance of proper flossing, brushing and rinsing. Each child that received the screening got to take home a goody bag filled with a new toothbrush, floss and mouthwash. Volunteers from J&J also came to each Club during the screening times and had fun activities that the children enjoyed. Thanks again to J&J for sponsoring this event and inspiring the children to learn the importance of healthy oral habits.
