Healthy Smiles Program

Healthy Smiles Program is a must for all parents looking to give their child the very best dental start in life. Classes are designed for children between 5 and 7 years of age. It is much easier to teach a child the correct techniques at this young age than to correct bad habits later in life.

Why Healthy Smiles Program?

Each year, many children end up with cavities in baby and adult teeth simply because of lack of good information that’s accessible to children and useful to parents. The Healthy Smiles Program provides a safe and controlled environment for children to learn about oral health basics in a fun and friendly way. The groups are kept small so that time can be spent engaging with each child and their parent(s).

What Does It Cover?

Each course consists of a 30-minute module once a week over 4 consecutive weeks. Each module builds on the previous, so it is advisable to attend all 4 sessions. Children will learn about how to keep their teeth clean, why healthy teeth are important, what causes tooth decay, the impact of diet on dental health and the role of the dental team.

It is a fun and educational program to teach young children how to stay dentally healthy and happy, and to adopt good habits that can last a lifetime.
