On April 9th I participated in the national campaign organized by the Canadian Dental Hygiene Association, called the “gift from the heart” at New Life Church’s Clothing Closet, at 400 Victoria Rd N. Guelph. Providing answers to question on oral health care and how it relates to overall health. For 5 lucky attendants, I gave away free 1 hour cleaning including a free initial examination.
Then, on May 27, 2016, I was one of the Volunteers for the Healthy Athletes Special Smiles at the University of Guelph. I helped collect data and construct mouth guards for the athletes participating in the Special Olympics. The evening was very enjoyable for me, to see all those happy smiles come through the room. It was well organized by the dental professionals involved with the Special Olympics Special Smiles program.
Have a safe and happy summer.
