Do you believe in the Tooth Fairy? Well the Elementary School kids in Barron will very soon. A team of 3 or more dentists will be descending upon the school the first week of September to give each and every primary school kid a dental health checkup. Included in the program will be education, fluoride treatments, sealing and basic fillings. Local dentists are waiting in the wings for referrals. This has all been cooked up by Claire Silk, La Lagunita resident and retired dental hygienist. Through her contact with philanthropic dentist friends, she has arranged to have portable dental office equipment shipped to Mazatlan where it will remain for future use. Friends of Barron is helping out with the effort by providing liaison with local Barron officials and local dentists.
