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.
