The Washington Oral Health Foundation (WOHF) is active this school year, with a number of oral health presentations already lined up for fall. Last Wednesday, WOHF saw its first high school group, presenting on the importance of good oral health and the dangers of tobacco and meth use. 60 students at West Auburn Senior High School in Auburn WA received information and engaged in discussion about the effects that cigarettes, spit tobacco and methamphetamines have on the body. “We are an alternative high school,” said Noreen Kebba, the family and consumer science teacher at West Auburn, “so our students really need this information.”
The Washington Oral Health Foundation (WOHF) has supported school nurses for years through the Adopt-a-School program, which links dental offices with local schools to provide emergency care to students who lack access to care or a dental home.
