Meridian, Miss. First graders at Parkview Elementary School were visited Thursday by students from the dental hygiene program at Meridian Community College.
The dental hygiene students took time to teach the first graders the importance of brushing their teeth twice a day and flossing.
"They are just eager and ecstatic and they just love it," said MCC student, Yen Nguyen. "And it just makes my day, and makes us proud as dental hygiene students that they are so eager to learn, and so respectful and polite."
Each student was given a goodie bag with a brand new toothbrush, floss, and toothpaste.
MCC students also visited West Hills Elementary, Oakland Heights Elementary, Charles Young Head Start and MIDD Meridian.
