Club Youth Receive Free Dental Check-ups


Boys & Girls Clubs of Skagit County celebrated Dental Health Month in February with dental check-ups that took place at all four Clubs. The checkups are organized every year by local supporter and Club volunteer, Christine Johnson. Volunteer dentists provided a basic check of gum and teeth health, with a report sheet for youth to take home to their parents. This sheet will give parents information about their child’s dental health and let them know if they should schedule a follow up dentist visit. Youth were also given a gift bag with toothpaste and a fun toothbrush to take home. The kids were so excited that Mount Vernon Club director, Angela Freeberg had to quickly remind kids to wait till they get home to brush. The Clubs would like to thank all the dentists that volunteered their time: Dr. Larry Forsythe, Dr. Christine Johnson, Dr. Noah Frerichs, Dr. Larry Quesnell, and Dr. Keri Halgren.
