Partnership works to have students cavity-free
OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) - Math, science and reading are high priorities for any school, but Sacred Heart School is also concerned about the student body.
Specifically, more than just the student's mind but everything from head to toe.
"Our job in the [Catholic Schools of Omaha] is to educate the whole child," said Principal Mike Jensen.
To help fill the gap between a child's education and welfare, students from Creighton University's School of Dentistry paid a visit Monday.
The program adopted the school for its Give Kids a Smile program.
We came back this spring to deal with dental sealants, fluoride and educate the students at Sacred Heart, said lead student organizer Katrina Goebel.
Last fall, the college students screened the student's teeth to determine the work needed for when they returned.
The program also brought its concept to Nelson Mandela Elementary last year.
The goal is to have students cavity-free by 2023, according to Goebel.
