The Learning Tree is a local preschool and daycare center in McDonald, OH. The children at The Learning Tree received a day filled with dental education and fun. The Ross students provided a coloring station, a face-painting station, and a play dough head station complete with fill & drill teeth! The Tooth Fairy even made an appearance and took pictures with the kids. According to the Tooth Fairy, “The smiles of the future never looked brighter!”

The Dental Assistant students also learned a lot that day. Mackenzi Goda stated, “At first, I was skeptical about visiting the preschool, but it made me think of different job opportunities in the dental field with children that I might enjoy.”
