For Parents

These resources will help parents who wish to learn how to help keep their children’s teeth healthy, and to take on leadership roles in their communities.

For Early Care and Education Settings

Staff may find these resources useful for educating the program-wide community: children and their families, teachers, caregivers, and other staff members (e.g., those involved in meal preparation).

For Schools

School staff may find these resources useful for educating the school-wide community: students and their families, cafeteria workers, teachers and other staff members.

For Workplaces
