Smile Solutions Has Its Very Own Tooth Fairy

Smile Solutions is proud to fund the Tooth Fairy program aimed at positively educating children on good oral hygiene habits. 

 

Tooth Fairy Program

Concerning statistics from the 2014 National Child Oral Health Survey revealed that over 40 per cent of Australia’s children aged between 5 and 10 had tooth decay in their baby teeth, and over a third of children aged between 9 and 14 had decay in their permanent teeth.

To help reduce the number of Australian children suffering from preventable dental diseases, Smile Solutions, Australia’s largest dental practice, developed and sponsors a free preventative initiative to help ensure children know how to care properly for their teeth and gums.

The initiative aims to assist both parents and teachers to educate children in oral health care. In the education sector, the program sees the Smile Solutions Tooth Fairy, who is a registered dental nurse, travel to schools, kindergartens and early learning centres around Melbourne to perform an educational show. Filled with practical learnings, song, laughter and Boris the puppet dragon, the program has children are immersed in oral hygiene 

You can visit the Tooth Fairy website at any time with your children. There you will find a Tooth Fairy video to watch with your child which explains what they can expect on their first visit to the dentist, along with educational activities to add an element of fun and excite them about oral health care.
