As part of The Way to Happiness Better, Brighter Me program, Gail Thomason from Harlingen Family Dentistry presented “Happy Teeth Happy Smiles” to children at the Harlingen Outreach Center. The children were shown the relationship between the foods they eat and the health of their teeth as well as the role sugar plays in causing tooth decay. The youth did an essay on what they learned by writing a success story. They also began their project plan sheets on how to Take Care of Yourself, the precept from The Way to Happiness.
Each child also received, courtesy of Harlingen Family Dentistry, a large dental health poster, a dental health coloring book and a dental health chart with stickers. Refreshments were served by the Harlingen High School JROTC.
