Dyer Family Dentistry team members Lelani Kasper and Andrea Valle visit the Lake County Indiana school system in the month to February as it is National Children Denal Health month. They educated the children about oral health, proper brushing and flossing techniques and emphasized the importance of good diet, good home care and how important it is to visit the dentist twice a year.

In February, the American Dental Association sponsors National Children’s Dental Health Month as a way to raise awareness and the importance of oral hygiene. During NCDHM, Dyer Family Dentistry team members, Lelani Kasper and Andrea Valle, traveled to various schools throughout the Lake Central School Corporation in Lake County Ind. to teach young students the importance of oral healthcare. “We did this because we are here for our community.” said Tony Waznonis, Operations Manager for Dyer Family Dentistry.

For each presentation, the kids were told the importance of brushing at least twice a day, the possible consequences of not doing so, and what to expect when they visit their dental office.

For Vivian Velasco of Lake Central High School, it was important for us to speak with the Family Wellness class and inform them of different ways of staying healthy. “It’s important for these young kids to know what to expect at their dental office visit. Children are afraid of what they don’t know. We talked with them explaining exactly what happens when they come visit their dentist for their six month cleanings and exam.” said Patient Care Coordinator, Lelani Kasper.

“Coming to a dentist can be a rewarding experience for children.” said Dr. Atcha, Dental Implant and Sedation Specialist for Dyer Family Dentistry. We start seeing children at age 2-3.

Models were brought to the schools to demonstrate proper brushing, flossing, the structure of a tooth, and some of the instruments a hygienist and doctor will use during their visit. Dyer Family Dentistry donated over 800 toothbrushes and information packets to the schools.

Some of the schools that the Dyer Family Dentistry staff visited include, Lake Central High School, Clark Middle School, Bibich Elementary, Kolling Elementary, Homan Elementary, and Peifer Elementary.

Dr. Atcha, Dr. Sandhu, Dr. Khan, and Dr. Sediq are proud to serve their patients and community. They offer high level care through continuing education and state-of-the-art equipment. “As we say at Dyer Family Dentistry, the care and technology is state-of-the- art.” said Dr. Atcha. Our Doctors take 10 times the advanced continuing education to keep abreast with the latest in the field of dentistry." Dentistry changes every five years if you don't keep up and advance yourself you are not providing the patient with 21st Century care" says Atcha.
