Albany County and the Smile Monster Celebrate Children’s Dental Health Month
February 18, 2014
Albany County will be all smiles this week as Albany County Executive Daniel P. McCoy celebrates Children’s Dental Health Month with the help of the Smile Monster on Thursday, February 20 at 10:30 a.m. in the lobby of the county health department’s dental clinic at 175 Green Street.
County Executive McCoy, Chair of the Legislature Shawn Morse, Majority Leader Frank Commisso, County Legislators Norma Chapman, Mary Lou Connolly and Merton Simpson will show youngsters that taking care of their teeth is a lifelong habit. Joining the County Executive for the first time will be the Smile Monster, who will serve as Albany County’s official smile ambassador. The Smile Monster will partner with the county at events and assist at events to help celebrate the positive things that are happening in the community.
In 2013, the county’s dental clinic hosted 6,300 visits. This will be an excellent photo opportunity. Our dental clinic is booked solid because of school vacation.
