Severe dental decay undermines the quality of life of young children through pain and problems with sleeping, eating and behaviour. It is vital to promote and maintain good oral health, especially in early childhood, when many lifetime habits are established. Evidence suggests that good oral health in infancy and early childhood contributes to better general health in adulthood. As school teachers, you are in an ideal position to launch key initiatives and simple health information about dental care.

The Oral Health Foundation have created useful lesson plans and presentations to use within your classes.
