Land of Smiles Takes Schools By Storm

by Noelle Reinhold 10/6/2015 8:00 AM

Our Land of Smiles® educational program has been on the road in Missouri and South Carolinasince 2002 — teaching children in kindergarten through 3rd grade to take good care of their teeth. In this interactive (and free) program, Tooth WizardSM and Tooth Fairy teach kids how to brush, floss and use mouthwash to keep PlaqueManSM away.

Land of Smiles by the numbers:

·      More than 400 schools visited each year

·      Over 75,000 total children reached 

Tooth Wizard gets kids excited about oral health by: 

·      Demonstrating proper brushing and flossing techniques

·      Discussing tooth-healthy food choices

·      Reinforcing the importance of bi-yearly dentist visits

Along with the educational program, each school receives a Land of Smiles curriculum kit, including a lesson plan, Land of Smiles DVD, sing-a-long CD, children's books and a larger-than-life model of a mouth and toothbrush.

 

To learn more about this program, or if you are interested in bringing the award-winning Land of Smiles program to your school, have your child’s teacher, principal or school nurse go to www.LandofSmilesProgram.org.
