Head Start Program 2016


“Head Start is a Federal program that promotes the school readiness of children from birth to age five from low-income families by enhancing their cognitive, social, and emotional development. Head Start programs provide a learning environment that supports children’s growth in many areas such as language, literacy, and social and emotional development. Head Start emphasizes the role of parents as their child’s first and most important teacher. These programs help build relationships with families that support family well-being and many other important areas.”

As a team we visited the Head start program and taught the children ages 3-5 proper techniques to brush and floss. Then conducted screening for possible caries and documented our findings using the dmfs format. After we applied varnish and gave out referrals if needed for the parents to bring to the Dentist.
