SmileLYNN Pediatric Dentistry Offers Free Books To Local Kindergartens
Health and wellness is about a child’s mind and body, and Dr Casey Lynn of SmileLYNN Pediatric Dentistry is on a mission to ensure that children in his community are on the right track. For this reason, it has partnered with Apollo Beach Elementary and Doby Elementary to provide School Book Fair books to every kindergarten student.
Prior to COVID-19, Dr Lynn kept many books in his office for children to read, and he often allowed parents to take them home when the children became tied up. When he had to remove books from his desk, he realized that many families could lose access to literature when libraries closed and schools went virtual.
Just as dentistry is about preventative care and maintenance from an early age, early literacy is often a marker of a student’s success later in life. For this reason, he created the SmileLYNN Reader’s Program to ensure that students can start building libraries at home. A native of Brandon, Dr. Lynn has always wanted to come back and serve the community he grew up in.
“The community has really embraced our office and I want to help wherever I can,” he said.
Additionally, Dr Lynn made sure to purchase books at school book fairs to ensure that a percentage of what he spent would go back to each elementary school. “I want every child to be able to have books and develop a love of reading,” he said. He hopes to expand to other local primary schools in the future.
Dr. Lynn’s practice is an extension of his love for children and his passion for health. He designed his office to feel right at home, so kids associate going to the dentist with positive experiences. Its gentle approach helps children of all ages feel comfortable during cleanings and procedures. Plus, it has options in place for added convenience if your child needs a more extensive procedure or may have special needs that make dental care difficult. He wants to give all families the tools they need to have good oral hygiene throughout their lives.
