Oral health education and preventive dental services help support healthy habits, decay prevention, and long lasting changes that improve overall health. We believe the keys to good oral health are:
- Age specific preventive messages for participants.
- Involvement of strong role models (teachers, school nurses and local dental professionals) to help deliver oral health messaging.
- Parents as partners in oral health prevention.
Regular dental visits that include preventive services, nutritional guidance and oral hygiene education.
