Students from the 4th grade were once again asked to participate in the "Greater New York Smiles" program for the 2012 Greater New York Dental Meeting at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. According to Jayme McNiff, Program Manager, over 1,400 students from all five NYC boroughs attended this educational fieldtrip! "We learned how important it is to brush, floss, eat healthy and see the dentist on a regular basis", said Lamaya (pictured bottom-left). Brayan (top-center) was very excited about seeing the Greater New York Dental's mascot, Dr. Rabbit. "We got to see the big purple rabbit...he showed everybody how to take care of our teeth".
The program was an enormous success and plans are already well under way to repeat the program next year! Each student received a bag filled with gifts from Colgate oral care products and each class received a photo from the event. Special thanks to Jayme McNiff who makes sure PS4 kids attend each year.
