Butte Dentists Teach Summer Campers About Importance of Oral Hygiene

BUTTE, MT--(Marketwired - July 28, 2015) - Butte Family Dental, a leader in dental implants, is conducting an oral hygiene awareness program in July and August at the local Butte Kiwanis Sunshine Camp.

Dr. Kyle McIntyre and Dr. Tara Gilbreath, two doctors at Butte Family Dental, plan to visit the children’s summer camp three times in July and again on Aug. 3. The Butte Kiwanis Sunshine Camp hosts both local girls and boys for two weeks each summer. The camp was developed to serve children who come from low-income families.

The Butte Family Dental dentists will conduct oral hygiene awareness programs during the camp. The doctors will be giving out baggies filled with toothbrushes, floss, and other dental care items as well as brushing and flossing instructions. Dr. McIntyre and Dr. Gilbreath will also engage the children with fun activities and provide brushing charts for the campers.

“We, at Butte Family Dental, are concerned with the health of the children in our community,” Dr. McIntyre said. “This opportunity gives us a chance to give back to the community and help promote oral health for these disadvantaged youth.”

Butte Family Dental hosts a number of outreach programs throughout the year. In addition to treating children, the doctors of Butte Family Dental regularly visit local elementary schools to offer free dental screenings and to teach children about the importance of oral health.

The practice also is a sponsor of Senior All Nighter, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and MT Tech Athletics and hosts an annual Halloween Candy Buy-Back Event.

Dr. Gilbreath said the office enjoys taking the time every year to visit the camp and educate a new group of youngsters about their teeth.

“It is always exciting to engage with the youth of our community,” Dr. Gilbreath said. “They are so appreciative of the time we spend with them and for the goodie bags they get to take home, which were put together by our wonderful staff.”
