Elementary school is the perfect time for children to learn about the importance of dental health. Kool Smiles makes it easier than ever for elementary school teachers to download lesson plans about oral health and dental care.
With these lesson plans, teachers are one step closer to helping kids keep healthy smiles for life.
As teachers, you already know how important it is to start children out with good habits early on.
The lesson plans we’ve designed are perfect for students from kindergarten to 5th grade. They can be easily downloaded and printed out for students.
Our materials include activity sheets, coloring pages, experiments, and games that teach the following topics:
By teaching kids great habits through the use of fun activities like coloring sheets and crafts, kids will have lasting impressions of their teeth and how to keep their teeth healthy.
The fundamentals of dental health are important to maintain good oral health. When your children learn to brush their teeth at a young age, they are developing routines and skills for life.
Without proper brushing, flossing, and routine visits to the dentist, kids are likely to develop cavities and tooth decay.
Poor oral health can lead to serious health problems later in life including cardiovascular disease, dementia, respiratory infections, and diabetes.
At Kool Smiles, we make education a large part of each child’s dental visit. During a dental exam or check-up, we talk to kids about their daily dental habits and teach kids why it’s important to keep their teeth clean.
If you want to learn more about oral health lesson plans or how to maintain your child’s dental health, visit one of our 120 convenient locations, or call your local office.
