Halloween Isn’t All About Candy

On October 28, members of the Gamma Delta chapter of Alpha Delta Nu, participated in the Mercy College “Trunk or Treat” event. Students showed children healthy Halloween treats and how to care for their teeth. Kids were given treats such as pumpkin faced clementines and mummy wrapped bananas to promote the Halloween spirit. Students wanted the snacks to be fun and healthy and they spoke to children about the importance of brushing and flossing, especially after eating Halloween candy. Children were given new toothbrushes and floss to ensure they had the tools they needed to get the job done. Jacob (pictured) enjoyed visiting the table. He received dental floss and a new toothbrush and learned how to properly brush. Carrie Franks mentions, “the student nurses made brushing fun, motivating Jacob to brush his teeth. Thank you!”
