Welcome to Children's Healthy Smile Project
Improve Children's oral hygiene and promote a healthy smile by providing oral hygiene supplies such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss and educational materials to children in need. See "Our Projects" page for more information.
Many needy children who lack good oral hygiene habits or dental care can have severe tooth decay and gum disease which may result in physical pain or discomfort. In many cases, this leads to low self-esteem. Early intervention with education for both parent and child, plus basic oral hygiene supplies, can make a difference now and in the future. See: "The Facts" for more information.
"Prevention of dental disease starts with a baby's first tooth. Education of both parent and child is crucial."
