Summer Camp

VDA Members Talk Dental Hygiene Once More with Summer Campers

On Friday, August 12, our members took on a fun assignment once again. They talked with campers in Northern Virginia about the importance of proper oral health!

Many thanks to Drs. Emily DaSilva and Carol Wooddell for spending time with the children. The two spoke to the campers at South Run RECenter in Springfield.

The camp, organized by Fairfax Parks & Recreation, is the largest summer camp in Northern Virginia. Children came into the room in several groups over a two-hour period to learn about the importance of brushing, flossing and taking care of their teeth.

This summer has been a busy one for the VDA dentists in Northern Virginia. In June, VDA dentist Dr. Sanford Montalto, and his wife, Rebecca, a hygienist, volunteered to educate seniors on their oral health. The event took place at the South County Senior Center in Alexandria. The senior center is part of the Fairfax County Parks & Recreation system.

And in July, Drs. Raymund V. Favis and Niloofar Mofakhami met with campers at Providence Rec Center in Falls Church for a discussion on how to be “mouth healthy.”

Thank you to our friends at Fairfax Parks & Recreation for being such willing partners all summer long. Special thanks to Barbara Nugent, park services division director, for her help to coordinate the three volunteer events.
