Cavity Free Day Celebration
February 29 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics and the Assistance League of Santa Barbara will celebrate the Cavity Free Children who are patients at our dental clinics!
The Cavity Free Club was established in 2012 as an incentive for kids and their parents to practice good oral health. Children patients ages 3 to 12 at the Eastside Family Dental Clinic and the Goleta Neighborhood Dental Clinic who do not have any cavities or were able to remain cavity free for 6 months are eligible club members. Their pictures are posted on the cavity free board, in the reception area of each clinic. This annual event is held to celebrate the success of the families by presenting each child with a certificate of achievement and congratulations for being an excellent “Cavity Fighter”. Children are entered into drawings on the day of the event to win multiple prizes.
“The Smiles Program of the Santa Barbara Assistance League plays a crucial role in this day. They have a program with volunteer educators who come to our dental clinics in the afternoon and educate the children on proper oral health habits such as brushing and flossing,” explained Dr. Caluori. “This is also where the children and parents learn about the negative effects of sugar in our diet and how to make smart dietary choices.”!
