Letter: Bright smiles, bright futures

Much gratitude goes out to the many volunteers and teachers, the Aspen Thrift Shop and Basalt High School, which hosted the 16th annual Children’s Dental Fair. Children’s teeth are meant to last a lifetime, and a healthy smile is important to a child’s self-esteem and overall health. Two hundred twenty-nine Basalt and Aspen second-graders learned that with brushing twice for two minutes a day, eating healthy foods and regular dental visits, their teeth can remain healthy and strong for life. From start to finish, our volunteers were an incredible team, and because of their dedication and hard work, our day was a whirlwind of bright smiles. Thank you all for your commitment of time and energy to this important event.
