February is Children's Oral Health Month. BRISTLES has visited elementary and pre-schools every February to provide fun dental education and story time.  Videos, Brushing demonstrations using volunteers and goodies for all.



Our neighboring schools have always been demonstrative of their appreciation for our community visits.  We enjoy visiting our neighboring schools and having a chance to meet bright intelligent children.
