As part of our commitment to our patients and our community, Orthocare Systems Orthodontics provide orthodontic education in St. Louis, Missouri. For more information on our continuing orthodontic education programs, and to make your appointment with Dr. E. Glenn Glassman, please contact our office today.
For more than 30 years, Orthocare Systems Orthodontics has provided free, fun, and entertaining education experiences to over 40,000 grade-school children within the St. Louis metropolitan area. These visits are usually provided at school assemblies for children grades 3-6, and last 45-60 minutes.
During these programs, both students and teachers actively participate. We teach proper brushing techniques and dental tips, and the visit includes Dr. E. Glenn Glassman’s “Story of Decay” and a visit from the Tooth Fairy and from our own Mr. Big tooth. We include magic to help keep children entertained during the presentation, and modify the program for older children to encompass health-care careers and opportunities. Following the program, each student is provided with a toothbrush and an educational handout. Each year we hand out thousands of toothbrushes to children at public and private schools in the St. Louis area.
Please contact our office to learn more about our non-profit educational program, and to make arrangements for us to visit your school.
