Why
Despite $417 million being spent on dental health since 2007, the amount of cavities being seen is still around the 40% mark. Yet FREE Dental care is available for children up to age 18. Many Parents still don't see teeth care as a priority health concern and only seek treatment in severe cases. (i.e the child is in continual pain) — source NZ Herald. In some households the entire family still shares one toothbrush.

The Solution to this Problem  —  simple education that's made to be fun !

What
We invite you to become a 'Family Teeth Matters' school. We'll provide you with the necessary resources and our 'Free' Dental Health Project Box that can rotate through your school classrooms. After our initial presentation and Power Point any of the staff can use the material in class projects. And every child will receive a free toothbrush. Their parents will love you !

Easy as One ... Two ... Three ...

Dental Health is so easy to achieve.

It's just a simple matter of re-programming. Remember when smoking cigarettes used to be cool.
Not anymore. We've been re-programmed !

How we initiate re-programming is by simply visiting schools with a fun audio visual presentation aimed at educating parents, teachers and children  —  and of course lots of  fun stuff  like free toothbrushes for each child.

We then leave the school with the resources they will need to rotate the project through the classrooms.
The results and reception so far  —  outstanding!

Please consider becoming a sponsor of this program.

We are not for profit, but providing low-decile schools with free resources does cost money that has to come from somewhere.
If you become a sponsor we will promote you at our Parents and Pupils evenings. You will be branded on our 'Dental Health Project Box' that rotates around the school classrooms. Your logo will be included right here on this website.

More importantly you'll feel great knowing you are doing your bit to help the kids!
