Celebrate Teeth at Storytime


6-12 August is Dental Health Week, so it’s the perfect time to celebrate our teeth — and the wonderful jobs they do.

We know how tricky it can be to get kids excited about taking care of their teeth so let’s have some fun and celebrate dental health during Storytime.

To help kids learn about teeth, how to brush well, and visits to the dentist, we've compiled some handy resources that can be used together with the stories being read.

  • List of storybooks
  • Songs
  • Fun craft activities

We’ve also included some handouts to share with families.

  • Share our storybook ideas with families or feel free to make up your own.
  • 'Take the fuss out of the brush' - tips for parents
  • Apps and videos to help encourage kids to brush
  • 'Free dental visits for children' - information handout

We would love it if you could celebrate teeth with children and families during Dental Health Week!
