Dr. Joe DeBiase DDS, a 2003 graduate of Westlake High School, paid a visit to Hawthorne Elementary School to teach students in kindergarten through second grade the importance of good dental hygiene. He had the children rolling with laughter as he demonstrated with live models the proper technique for brushing and flossing. Several student volunteers dressed up as teeth, some with cavities, which Dr. Joe then brushed with his giant toothbrush. Every student left the assembly with a goodie bag (filled with a toothbrush and floss) and the knowledge of how to care for their teeth properly. It was a great way to get kids excited about brushing!
