Join us for Safe Smiles on May 21
Remington College Fort Worth Campus will provide dental health tips, complimentary ToothPrint child identifications and family activities at a Safe Smiles event on Saturday, May 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Students and staff from the Remington College Dental Assistant Program will be hosting the event, which is free to the public.
Parents can take advantage of complimentary ToothPrint services for their children. The ToothPrint is a special child identification device that records both bite characteristics and DNA information. Parents receive a wafer with the information imprinted on it that serves as a permanent record, like a fingerprint. In addition to the DNA sample, the saliva scent on the wafer can be used by tracking dogs in the event of a missing child. The ToothPrint procedure takes only a few minutes and children as young as 3-4 years of age are usually able to provide an acceptable imprint.
Parents will also find tips on proper brushing, flossing and overall dental health, as well as free toothbrushes and toothpaste, t-shirts, a coloring contest and food (while supplies last).
The Remington College Dental Assistant Program is a diploma program that can be completed in as few as eight months. It is designed to cover a variety of topics, including oral anatomy, oral radiology and other specific dental procedures for people interested in pursuing entry-level positions as dental assistants.
Remington College Fort Worth Campus is located at 300 East Loop 820 in Fort Worth.
