For over two decades, First Step Dental has helped children be less afraid of visiting the dentist through field trips for Dental Health Month.

On Friday, the Turlock dental office once again welcomed local school children to learn more about dental health and what happens during a visit to the dentist.

“We invite local schools to come through so the kids can see how it is to be in a dental office and we make it fun and get them comfortable with coming back,” said Debbie Silveira of First Step.

Approximately 260 students from Crowell Elementary, Turlock Christian Elementary and Denair schools made their way through different learning stations at First Step Dental on Friday.
