"For me, this is part of why I want to be a hygienist," said Andrea Donovan, one of the PRCC students. "I want to help people, I want to help children, I want to teach people about oral health and how important it is," she said.
"It's just a great opportunity for us to meet with the children, teach them the importance of dental hygiene, oral care," said Adam Boargoub, another PRCC student. "This is an important stage in (the child's) life, when they're getting rid of their baby teeth and starting to grow in their permanent teeth, something that will affect them for the rest of their life," he said.
The annual event was co-sponsored by the South Mississippi Dental Society.
