Girl Scout Troop brings smiles to AZ Dental Office
Every Kids Dentist at the Ahwatukee Foothills Town Center in Phoenix, Arizona, a member of the Smile Generation family, hosted a Girl Scout troop at their office. The girls snacked on an assortment of “healthy for our teeth” snacks while listening to a presentation on what to expect when going to the dentist. Each girl shared stories of their experiences at the dentists and boy were they funny. Some even told on their moms for having bad teeth! The energetic bunch then took a tour of the office and looked at digital x rays. The lights and sounds of the CEREC milling unit, which can restore teeth in a single visit, captivated both the kids and their adult chaperones. The girls’ visit ended with a great “oral hygiene instructions” presentation by Dr. Jarvis, in which he talked about how to properly take care of one’s mouth. Arizona Cactus Pine Girl Scout Troop 2023 left with dental goodie bags in hand and huge smiles on their faces!
No Girl Scout cookies were consumed at the event, but we told the girls that they could have them in moderation.
Here are the snacks we served.
