Dr. Winifred J. Booker, CEO of the Children’s Oral Health Institute, travels to elementary school around the U.S. from Owings Mills, Maryland to share a message and a bright orange lunchbox concept that she created more than 20 years ago.
“Lessons in a Lunchbox teaches the child independence; therefore, it provides her or him the ability to brush and floss using the dental kit, the carrot case, and the lunchbox,” Dr. Booker said, referencing the program she developed which features around an ingeniously crafted carrying case, designed to teach elementary school children the importance of dental hygiene.
