Lawmakers Handing Out Dental Care Kits For Kids

(WLNS) – Delta Dental has put together some dental health and literacy tote bags for lawmakers to give to elementary students in their home districts.

February is National Children’s Dental Health month and March is National Reading month.

Delta Dental officials say they’ll combine it all and help keep kids healthy while they learn.

“We have a simple message for children which is 2×2+20. That is we want them to brush their teeth twice a day for two minutes and read at least 20 minutes a day,” said Lu Battaglieri, senior vice president, Delta Dental of Michigan.

So far more than 1,700 tote bags have been ordered by 96 lawmakers.
