Each year during National Children's Dental Heath Month Dr. Travis visits local elementary schools to educate kids on proper oral health habits. Approximately 600 kindergarteners, 1st, and 2nd graders are taught proper brushing and flossing techniques, given a dental activity book, and a brand new toothbrush. Visiting schools and educating children is a tradition that Dr. Rick started over 20 years ago.
Here Dr. Travis is teaching the proper brushing technique with the help of a volunteer and puppet, Leo.
