Hays: First 5 Commission thanks dentists for help

As you may be aware, the First 5 Lake County Commission provides New Parent Kits to parents of children born in Lake County. Keeping babies and young children healthy and free of disease is a large part of the educational materials in these kits.

In order to keep oral health a critical part of this outreach effort, many agencies have provided funding/supplies to ensure each kit contains an infant toothbrush and non-fluoride toothpaste.

In response to a recent request to local dentists to join in our efforts to stop the transmission of oral disease from mother to child we asked for help in providing each kit with an adult-sized toothbrush and dental floss.

We would like to thank the following for their generous donations: Dr. Brian Grey, Dr. Alexander McGeoch, Dr. Thomas Hewlitt and Dr. Prasong Imsaurey

It is certainly apparent you are aware of the importance of establishing the practice of sound oral hygiene as early as possible in a child’s life. Thank you again for helping us to achieve this goal.

Vicki L. Hays is secretary for the First 5 Lake County Commission.
