Delta Dental of North Carolina Donates Toothbrushes to the Poe Center
Children learn about oral health at the Poe Center.
Nonprofit dental benefits provider Delta Dental of North Carolina donated 2,000 toothbrushes to the Alice Aycock Poe Center for Health Education during its “Super Smiles” oral health education session Nov. 17. Fifty first-graders from Grace Christian School learned about oral health and hygiene during the program, and each student received a toothbrush to take home and practice brushing techniques. Delta Dental donated the toothbrushes as part of a toothbrush drive held by the Poe Center. The total number of toothbrushes collected during the drive was 3,500. Through its innovative oral health teaching theater, the Poe Center will continue to distribute donated toothbrushes to participants during future sessions.
