« WOHF AROUND THE STATE »

WOHF RECOGNIZES FOUNDATION SUPERSTAR
Dr. Sarah Hill has adopted 43 schools in the Mount Baker District area — in Anacortes, Burlington, Oak Harbor, Sedro Woolley and more. She’s amazing to be around, very personable and giving. We had activities in three different rooms and all of the kids wanted to be in the room with her. She has this positive energy that makes it easy to be around her.

VOLUNTEER WITH THE FOUNDATION
The Washingotn Oral Health Foundation has volunteer opportunities across the state — working with children presenting oral health presentations, volunteering for mobile dental clinics and many others. If you would like to find out how you can help in your community, contact Ruth at ruth@wsda.org.

WOHF Events in the news
Ms. Launa Lea, Education Programs Coordinator for the Washington Oral Health Foundation recently staffed a number of events around the state, educating children about proper oral hygiene.

Echo Lake Elementary
At a recent Echo Lake Elementary School Science night in Shoreline there were more than 300 students in attendance and close to 100 volunteers and exhibitors.

Queets Elementary School
Ms. Lea made arrangements to provide screenings by a WSDA member dentist for all the students. After the screening, treatment was provided by Smile Mobile volunteers. 

Boys and Girls Clubs in Skagit County
WOHF finished off February visiting Boys and Girls Clubs in Skagit County.  After a catered dinner and an oral health presentation in Anacortes, Dr. Sarah Hill and her assistant Kate from Playhouse Dental Clinic stole the show!  Swarms of kids gathered around to practice flossing and talk with Dr. Hill.  All the kids took home a new toothbrush, floss, paste and a big smile.  It was mayhem and tons of fun!
