Visit from a dentist

Dr. Mamoon Rashid is a dad in our class.
He came to visit us today to tell us all about his work as a dentist.
Mamoon had some interesting things to show us:
He brought us two mouth mirrors (the rest are being sterilized in the autoclave), and a set of model teeth and toothbrush.
We learned how many teeth adults have (32) and children have (26) and we had a great lesson on how best to brush our teeth.  We were even shown how much toothpaste to use (the size of a pea!).
We are going to take Dr. Rashid's advice and be sure to brush our teeth twice EVERY DAY, and visit the dentist twice a year.

We especially loved being given a little tube of toothpaste and a sticker each.
Thank you so much for your great talk today!
Here are some interesting items about keeping your teeth healthy!
