FAIRCHILD AIR FORCE BASE, Wash. -- Maj. Todd Weller, 92nd Dental Squadron, enlists the help of Justin Brown, 15 months, to brush Mojo the Monkey's teeth Tuesday at the Child Development Center. Justin is the son of Tech. Sgt. Jaime Brown, 22nd Training Squadron, and Staff Sgt. John Brown, 92nd Maintenance Operations Squadron. The dental team is making numerous trips to the CDC and base elementary schools this month in honor of National Children's Dental Health Month. Topics of education and discussion include brushing and flossing, dental care at home, and diet and nutrition for older children. "We're really trying to get across prevention," said Major Weller. "If you get started now, at this young age, the chances of having healthy teeth as an adult are much higher." (Photo by Staff Sgt. Connie L. Bias) Healthy habits
