On Monday, January 19th, we participated in the MLK celebration at Yale’s Peabody Museum. This year marked the 19th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Legacy of Social and Environmental Justice event held at the museum.
There was a vast array of educational activities for families and people of all age groups. Let’s Talk Teeth put together a hands-on exhibit, which was perfect for teaching our young visitors what they can do each day to take care of their teeth and gums. We enjoyed steady traffic at our booth and it was great to see so many people stopping by to learn about oral care.
Caretakers and kids received toothbrushes and toothpaste.
Whether riding a Hartford bus, walking along side it or driving behind one, be on the lookout for our new ads. Running in January, our campaign with the slogan, “If you Teeth could talk, what would they Say?” will be in full swing. The goal is to get CT residents thinking about dental care and making an appointment to see a dentist. The number for the CT Dental Health Partnership is prominently featured in all the ads. Complementing our bus ads will be brochures, posters and other marketing materials we will be giving out in other cities, including Bridgeport and New Haven.
We love being a part of this event. Please stop by and visit us on January 18th from noon to 4:00 p.m. and on January 19th from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission is free and the Museum has planned an array of activities perfect for the whole family in honor of Dr. King’s legacy. From storytelling to music and from a poetry jam to dancers, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.
We will be on hand to provide you with information, resources and a few goodies that will help you keep your teeth and gums healthy.
