Family Dental Health Services visits area schools for Dental Health Month

For Dental Health Month, Family Dental Health Services dentist Dr. Matthew Wettach volunteered at area schools for the I-Smile program that provides free preventative dental sealants for second and third grade students.

Dental sealants protect the biting surfaces of molars, where 80 percent of dental decay starts. Wettach examined more than 175 students. He is scheduled to see more students at Winfield-Mt. Union and Salem elementary schools later this month.

February is Dental Health Month. If any teacher desires for Wettach to come and speak to area school children about dental health, contact Family Dental Health Services at 319-385-6750.
