Our Hands-On Learning Lab™ is a fun hands-on way for young people to learn the why’s and how’s of caring for their teeth and overall oral health. It’s an experiential approach to learning that makes it easier for patients to choose behaviors that will improve their overall health. Helping your child or teen learn to value and care for their oral health so that they become and remain disease-free into adulthood one of our biggest goals.
In the learning lab each child works one-on-one with their hygienist who acts as a coach and facilitator. Basic to the process is helping your child to uncover and discover his or her own beliefs and values about teeth and health. Children (indeed, all of us!) will only change a behavior if it matches their values.
We begin where they are and present developmentally appropriate learning and skills chosen for each individual. Learning progresses at each visit so each young person can take one more step toward optimal dental health for a lifetime.
If you would like more information about our program, please feel free to contact our New Hampshire Center for Comprehensive Dentistry at 603-672-6546. Our hygienists are also available for extended learning programs outside of normal business hours. Ask us how we can help your child better make personal choices for their health that will stick!
