Cookie season for the Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri is currently underway! Girl Scout Cookies will be for sale at booths throughout St. Louis and the surrounding areas in February and March. Girl Scouts may be famous for their cookies, but they are also dedicated to learning about good dental health—and we’re here to help. St. Louis Girl Scouts can earn their Girl Scouts Dental Health Patch right here at Dougherty Orthodontics in Valley Park.

Girl Scouts Dental Health Patch Program at Dougherty Orthodontics

We are proud to support our local Girl Scouts by giving them the opportunity to earn their Dental Health Patch. How does the Girl Scouts Dental Health Patch program work? Troops visit our office for a tour, a presentation, fun activities, and—last but not least—pizza! During their visit, Dr. Dougherty teaches the girls about the different parts of a tooth and how to keep their teeth healthy. They earn their Dental Health Patch by completing a certain number of educational and/or community activities, depending on their age and Girl Scout level (Daisy, Brownie, or Junior). By the end, they are eligible for their Girl Scouts Dental Health Patch.

You can support your local Girl Scout troops, too, by purchasing Girl Scout Cookies in St. Louis!
