With more than 29 years of combined experience, Drs. John M. Borchers and Michael T. Mckee care for teeth the way a kindergarten teacher cares for her class. Though they won’t teach incisors how to add or properly enunciate the pledge of allegiance, the doctors do ensure that each member of the group lives in harmony with its neighbor, maintains straight posture, and remains present and accounted for at all times. To accomplish this, Drs. Borchers and Mckee administer meticulous examinations that inspect each tooth for signs of decay and crookedness. And when teeth have gone missing altogether, dental implants can serve as permanent seat fillers, dutifully chewing on any urgently overdue homework.
UCP's nationally accredited Early Childhood Education program practices inclusionary education, in which children with developmental disabilities interact with and learn alongside their typically developing peers, developing new social and communicative skills from their engagement. Kids without disabilities who are in the program learn how to respect and interact positively with people who have disabilities. UCP hopes to encourage reading in all of these young children by exposing them to books that they can explore by turning pages and pointing to pictures. With this campaign, UCP hopes to stock its library with new books for its preschool program.
