Notes from the school nurse:  Go to the dentist twice every year.  We should visit the dentist twice a year for a checkup.  The dentist will clean your teeth and check for cavities or other problems.  Preventing cavities I s a lot easier than fixing them.  Humans do not grow new teeth.  Keep your permanent teeth healthy!
