Today Dr. Saurer joined the CEO of Benco Dental Chuck Cohen and several other Dentist at a school in Harlem to deliver Lessons in a Lunchbox. In response to the numerous health and behavioral issues seen in children with dental caries, Pediatric Dentist and CEO of the COHI, Winifred Booker, created the “Lessons In A Lunch Box: Healthy Teeth Essentials & Facts About Snacks” program to ensure teachers, parents and children are all working together to help eliminate this potentially deadly, yet completely preventable, disease. “Tooth decay remains the most common chronic disease of children ages five to seventeen. No child should be at-risk of dying from complications arising from dental caries, when all it takes is education and preventative maintenance to keep children’s teeth healthy,” said Dr. Booker.
After a day of giving back Dr. Saurer enjoyed a ride on the Brooklyn Bridge and a fine dinner with her favorite Brothers.
