Sikeston OHCAP 3-14-16

OHCAP students learned about how your oral health can affect your overall health.  I gave a presentation to the students entitled “Oral Health and You”.  Students then participated in the hands-on activity.  Students swabbed their mouths and then applied the swab to one section of an agar plate.  They then brushed their teeth and swabbed their mouth again.  This swab was then applied to a different portion of the agar plate in order to show before and after results.  Students will evaluate their findings in one week to see where bacteria grew on the agar plate.
