Oral Health Education

Good oral health habits that begin in childhood, carry through adulthood. Oral health is important to overall health and the NC Dental Society is proud to offer these lessons to help children learn how to take care of their teeth and practice healthy habits to prevent dental problems as they get older.

Below you will find age-appropriate videos, lesson plans, worksheets and tests for grades K-2, 3-5 and 6-8. Happy learning!

These materials were developed in collaboration with the NC Dental Society, NC Dental Society Foundation and the Delta Dental Foundation. Spanish translations are now available!
