Girl Scouts earn dentistry merit badge

Education Thursday, March 4, 2021

Members of Our Lady of the Lakes Girl Scout Troop 566 earned their dentistry merit badges while visiting Dr. Norma Victores in Hialeah.

The sixth graders, who attend Our Lady of the Lakes Catholic School, learned how to make impressions of teeth and form models. They also learned the difference between a tooth with a cavity and a healthy one and took turns in the chair during their visit to the dental practice on Feb. 9.

While earning badges, the Scouts explore different professions and careers they may choose to pursue in the future. --Megan Jacobo
