Fit Into Your Timetable
Family Teeth Matters Team will discuss with each School as the most suitable time to approach Parents & Children
Over the next three years, we endeavour to show both Parents & Children, routines designed to make teeth hygiene habits as natural as breathing
Tools For the Task
We provide a Dental Health Project Box which will rotate through the school classrooms. This box contains a wide selection of reading books with dental themes aimed at a range of reading ages. Included are is a PowerPoint presentation.
This means that after the initial presentation by the Teeth Team, any of the staff at the school can use the material in class projects.
Calm Teeth = Calm Students
This will ensure every child has access to a toothbrush - FREE !
Despite $417 million being spent on dental health since 2007, the amount of cavities
being seen is still around the 40%.
Yet FREE Dental care is available for children up to 18.
Many Parents still don't see teeth care as a priority health concern and only seek treatment in severe cases. [child in continual pain] -source NZ Herald
