Our oral health curriculum corresponds with the Land of Smiles® program and makes learning about oral health even more fun! Developed with input from teachers and school nurses, the curriculum provides lessons and activities to educate K-3 students about good oral health habits. The Land of Smiles® program curriculum adheres to National Health Education Standards, as well as Missouri and South Carolina health education standards.
Schools are given the option to also request smile bags for each child that participates in the program. A “smile bag” is an envelope that contains an individual toothbrush, toothpaste and container of dental floss to help students practice the good oral health habits they learn from the virtual program. Smile bags will be shipped to the school only, not to residential addresses.
