Dental health has a great effect on the overall health and well-being of children. Poor dental health can even impact the academic performance of children. The goal of our Brighter Smiles program is to provide an age-appropriate dental kit in every care package prepared for children 2 years and older.
A dental kit consists of:
- Age-appropriate toothpaste
- Age-appropriate toothbrush
- Floss or floss picks as appropriate
- Educational materials (if available)
With the generous support of area dentists, the Dayton Mercy Society, and donation drives coordinated by Scout and church groups, we have provided nearly 400 dental kits per month to support the dental health of area children.
