Seal in a Smile program at college

The College of New Caledonia hosted the annual Seal in a Smile program for children in School District 57.

Children made one or two visits to CNC's dental clinic. During the first visit their teeth were polished, they get a fluoride treament and an assessment. During the second visit children got a dental sealant.

"This is an extremely unique program." said Heather Brown, CNC Dental Clinic co-ordinator. "It provides targeted dental and oral healthcare to local children at the same time that it provides invaluable training to our dental students."
