A dentist and dad, Dr. Abbas Mohammadi, is making it fun for the city's kids to learn how to care for their teeth.
Every Saturday at 11:30am at Columbia Dental's Professor Tooth Cultural Center, 242 Trumbull Street in Hartford, parents can bring their children to a free program which includes the reading of a story and a tooth-brushing demonstration. The hour-long session also features face painting, balloons and tatoos. Children enjoy meeting with Professor Tooth himself!
The point? To eradicate any nerves associated with going to the dentist.
