Healthy Smiles for Colorado Kids
Get Your Free Oral Health Kit
Dental disease is a big problem. Cavities can make it difficult for a child to eat, grow, attend school in learn. Delta Dental of Colorado has created an oral health lesson video and lesson plan to help teach kids K-2 the importance of oral health.
Check out our video, The Cleaning.
The kit contains:
- Two DVDs (in English & Spanish) of an animated video, The Cleaning, featuring Chopper, an animated cat, and the Tooth Fairy, who help a boy learn about the importance of dental health.
- A lesson plan that provides some ideas on how to convey the importance of oral health to a K-2 audience. A second lesson plan is available for additional years. (PDFs of all materials are provided in an enclosed CD.)
- A take-home oral health tip sheet (in English & Spanish) for parents on how to keep their child's smile healthy.
- A poster on teeth brushing techniques to hang in a classroom.
- A calendar that children can use to document how often they brush their teeth, a certificate of achievement from the Tooth Fairy, fun stickers and coloring sheets.
Healthy Smiles for Colorado Kids: An Oral Health Lesson Plan for K-12 is provided free of charge as a community service of Delta Dental of Colorado Foundation.
