However, here at Alameda and Pleasanton Pediatric Dentistry, we celebrate children’s oral health all year long! Our staff visit schools to give education and fun hands-on exercises about good oral health. We use Tooth Fairy Island teaching modules which engage kids and excite them about how to maintain a healthy mouth and health body. We customize each presentation and activity according to the grade and time frame.
Please feel free to contact us if you’re interested in having our staff visit your school!
Tooth Fairy Island
How long are the lessons?
Lessons run about twenty minutes. For the best educational experience for the children we prefer to work with groups no larger than 20 students. We are happy to see more than one group during a visit.
What age groups do you give the lessons to?
Because we want to make sure that children receive this education as young as possible, our goal is to reach out to preschool children. However, we are happy to work with groups ranging from two-year-olds to young teenagers. The lessons are tailored to be followed and understood depending on the age group.
