To help observe Dental Health Month, students at the Wyoming Valley Montessori School enjoyed a visit from Daiphin Borber, dental hygienist of the Back Mountain Dental Office. Students were made aware of good dental hygiene, tooth care and the importance of regular visits to the dentist. Students also received a special toothbrush, stickers and information thanks to dentist Dr. James C. DeFinnis, DDS, also of the Back Mountain Dental Office. Helping with the presentation was Dino, the happy tooth dinosaur, who entertained the students during a tooth brushing exercise.
