First Step Dental held its annual elementary school field trip day on Friday in celebration of Dental Health Month.  Schools were invited to bring the children so they can see what happens during a normal visit to the dentist's office. Knowing what will happen before they have their first dental appointment can prevent children from being scared of the dentist.
