Invite a dentist or oral hygienist to visit the class and talk about their career choices in the dental profession. Have the dentist or oral hygienist demonstrate proper techniques for brushing and flossing. Students will take notes in their journals on the techniques and procedures taught by the visitors. Students will respond to the questions using the notes they took when the dentist and the oral hygienist visited. See the “Guest Speaker Activity Sheet.” Then have the students write a “how to” brochure on brushing and flossing. Include art work in your brochure.
