All Smiles at Lighthouse PAL with Penn Dental Medicine
University of Pennsylvania Dental Medicine students made a special trip to Lighthouse PAL on April 11th. The newest PAL center in the West Kensington section of Philadelphia was jazzed to host Penn Dental Medicine Night as their first event. More than 25 youngsters received free dental screenings and learned proper hygiene techniques.
Each participant received a status report card and goodie bag with a brand new toothbrush, toothpaste, hygiene information and healthy snacks. Penn students spoke to every PAL youngster about the importance of dental hygiene and how to brush and floss correctly. Children were able to practice proper brushing and flossing techniques on friendly fish and dragon puppets.
PAL thanks Penn Dental Medicine students for turning this valuable information into a fun night for PAL youngsters!
