Most kids aren’t necessarily lining up for a visit to their dental office.

One trio of youngsters gladly happened by a few in the course of one day.

On Thursday, Dr. Robert Bernstein, DMD, and the team welcomed the three children of Matt Hogan, a Territory Rep from the nation’s largest privately owned dental distributor, for an impromptu celebration of the national event, giant toothbrush included.

“The opportunity helps them discover the power and possibilities associated with a balanced work and family life, provides them an opportunity to share how they envision the future, and allows them to begin steps toward their end goals in a hands-on and interactive environment is key to their achieving success.”

The event was also celebrated officially at the Benco Dental home office in Pittston, Pa., where associates were invited to bring children, ages 13 to 18 to learn about the different departments at Benco and skills and education needed to begin a career there.
