At the Oral Health Foundation, we are dedicated to improving the oral health of young children. From brushing their first tooth, to their first trip to the dentist, a child's oral health plays a key part in their early year's wellbeing.
That’s why we focus on bringing oral health to all in the classroom. We have a full range of resources available for every key stage, as well as creating the opportunity to become a dental buddy or find one in your local area.
Dental Buddy is a series of free educational resources aimed at nursery and schoolchildren in order to increase the amount of time oral health is taught in the classroom.Read more
