PITTSTON, PA — March 14, 2014 — Lucy Hobbs, in 1866, became the first American female to earn a degree in dentistry. Fitting that the 2nd annual event in celebration of her provides three opportunities for education to all in attendance – gratis.
Crystal Washington, known for her ability to make complex Web topics accessible to the business community, presents one of three Continuing Education courses at the Lucy Hobbs Project Annual Celebration Honoring Exemplary Women in the Dental Community, to be held at the Omni Championsgate in Orlando, Fla., June 6.
As author of new book, The Social Media Why: A Busy Professional’s Practical Guide to Using Social Media Including LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest, Google+ and Blogs for Business, she offers a dynamic look at social media for the dental professional.

“This brushing station is adding interest with texture and color. You may even brush longer, who knows,” says Michelle Hnatyk of CenterPoint Design at Benco Dental.

With more than 37 million youth and adults participating at over 3.5 million workplaces each year, Take Our Daughters and Sons To Work Day celebrates 21 years of program history in 2014.
The 2014 program took place Thursday, April 24 across the country, including in Pennsylvania at the company headquarters of Benco Dental, the largest privately owned dental company in the United States.
In line with one of the goals of the day, children were allowed the opportunity to complete two 45-minute job shadow sessions to learn about the departments at the company.
As part of the activities, children assembled care packages to help support the needs of Veterans at the VA Medical Center, which for 50 years has been improving the health of the men and women who have served the nation.
In addition, they were invited to participate in a video shoot in the company’s Marketing Communications department.

This video, created as part of an image campaign – Heart Your Smile– aims to change public perception of dentistry in the UK.
The goal: to increase attendance and reinstate the dental team’s position as trusted members of the local community.
It’s not unlike the Partnership for Healthy Mouths, Healthy Lives in the U.S. which is sponsoring a public service advertising campaign created by the Ad Council. The Ad Council’s focus is on improving children’s dental health so they can develop into healthy adults. Its website 2min2x.org also provides tips for parents and caregivers on how they can teach their children habits for maintaining healthy teeth and a great smile.
One website features 2-minute videos children can watch two times each day while brushing their teeth. Share with your patients and their parents: http://www.2min2x.org/watch-brush
