Mouth Heroes for Schools
Poor oral health can negatively affect how a young mouth develops and leads to more than 50 million school hours being lost each year. It can also affect a child’s confidence, social skills as well as potential for success later in life. Oral health is, therefore, essential to a child’s general health and well-being. Parents agree that teachers are important oral health educators, which is why FDI Mouth Heroes for Schools has been launched. This multimedia resource provides teachers with the tools to give lessons on the importance of good oral health.
