Karate and Marvin the Molar Make a Great Team

Bedford Martial Arts Academy’s Elite After School Program

Welcomes Lindner Dental Associates Mascot, Marvin the Molar

What do karate and children’s dental hygiene have in common? A great deal, actually. Lindner Dental Associates, PC proudly provided an hour of fun and information to the children at Bedford Martial Arts Academy’s Elite After School Program.  On hand to speak with the children ranging in age from 5 to 9, was mascot, “Marvin the Molar”. Marvin spoke to the children about making sure they practice good dental care, including brushing twice daily, flossing, and staying away from sugary treats and drinks – all part of having a healthy body. The children also brushed Marvin’s teeth, showed him their best karate kicks, and had their pictures taken with him.

“It is important for children to develop good health habits early, stated Meg Steenbruggan, director of the Elite After School Program.  As health and wellness educators, martial arts encompasses a healthy mind and body, which includes good dental hygiene. Lindner Dental Associates’ mascot, Marvin is a great way to make children feel comfortable and have fun learning about the importance of taking care of their teeth.”

The event was well received and will now be an annual happening. “We are very pleased to be part of the Bedford community, and look forward to this event growing as time goes on, said Dr. Tracy Pogal-Sussman, Orthodontist. We are committed to our mission of providing the best dental care possible.” Children’s teeth in particular, are very susceptible to cavities and other dental issues and making it fun is all part of Lindner Dental’s mission. Karate and teeth, indeed do have a lot in common after all.
