Rotary Clubs in Highlands spread dental awareness among students

On October 12, Mary McClean, a registered dental hygienist and professional dental educator from Nashville, Tenn. presented a dental health program to the students in grades K-5 at Highlands School. Her presentation is part of a three-point dental health program jointly sponsored by the Rotary Club of Highlands and the Highlands Mountaintop Rotary Club. The other two segments of the program are a weekly fluoride swish for younger students and a yearly exam by volunteer dentists.

“Mary adds a level of experience and professional guidance to the Rotary sponsored school programs of dental health,” said Jerry Moore, President of the Rotary Club of Highlands. “We thank her for her generous volunteer efforts in our program. She truly makes a difference.”
