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 Carroll Gardens. The NYU Smiling Faces Going Places mobile dental van, outfitted with dental chairs, was parked near the school 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.
Assemblywoman Millman stated “Teaching good dental habits now will help ensure these children have healthy teeth as teens and adults. 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 the fourth time I helped bring this important service to the district and I am delighted to report that each time we continue to serve more children.”
