Kelly Abbe teaches Club members at the St. Charles unit location about sugar content in various foods and drinks.

The amount of sugar in food surprised many members.

They then learned how sugar affects teeth and why brushing and flossing are important. Club members also participated in activities about dental hygiene. Casey, a Youth Development Professional at the St. Charles unit, said about the event, “The kids were eager to go home and brush their teeth!” group photo with lindenwood dentistry
