Borrego Springs Elementary School students were treated to a little dental attention on Thursday, March 17, when members of the Borrego Community Health Foundation's (BCHF) dental team visited the school with diagnostic tools and new toothbrushes.

Dentists Alan Kuehn, DDS and Ryan Walker, DDS, with Dental Assistants Natalia Hernandez, Abigail Ledezema, Anatacia Gonzalez, along with Customer Service Representative Ruth Rowe set up in the school cafeteria.

One-by-one, each of the thirty two students took a seat, donned a paper bib, had a dental exam and one x-ray performed and documented, and was sent away with a new toothbrush.

The team reminded the students to brush at least twice a day to keep their teeth healthy.
