Millman Brightens Smiles at P.S. 32

June 15, 2009
Brooklyn – Assemblywoman Joan Millman teamed up with the New York University College of Dentistry to provide free dental exams for students at P.S. 32 in Brooklyn. The NYU Smiling Faces Going Places mobile dental van, outfitted with dental chairs, was parked nearby to serve classrooms of children throughout the day. After an exam by a dentist, children from P.S. 32 received an oral hygiene kit containing toothbrushes, toothpaste and results of the exam to share with their parents.

“Establishing good dental habits now will help ensure these children have healthy teeth as teens and adults,” said Millman. “I would like to thank Connie Turner at the NYU College of Dentistry and the staff at P.S. 32 for making this day possible. I look forward to bringing the dental van to more schools in the future. This is third time my office has coordinated the dental van, and each time, we serve more children.”
