Counselors Helping the Community

Dentistry at Hobbs Williams

The Grand Prairie Rotary Club provides free dental screenings and sealants to our school's 2nd grade students. Sandra Williams, a dental hygienist and Rotary representative, came to give a lesson on dental hygiene to all the 2nd grade students at Hobbs Williams Friday. She also reviewed the techniques and steps that are used when applying the sealants. This is a great resource for our students, and we are lucky to be a part of this program. 

Dentistry at Lee

The counselors and nursing staff at Lee Elementary coordinated services with Community Dental Care to provide free dental screenings for all the students and staff at school in celebration of Better Dental Health Month. Thank you to Ms. Bowler, Ms. Winters, Ms. Loyd, and Ms. Rodriguez.
