The Primary Health Care Team at the Orange Aboriginal Medical Service (OAMS) run an Indigenous-specific oral health program at public schools. The program runs over one week and children learn how to keep their teeth healthy by brushing their teeth, eating a good diet, and drinking water. The children learn how to clean their teeth correctly and the OAMS staff follow up with the schools to observe the children brushing their teeth after lunch for one week. The children enjoy participating in the program which includes a colouring competition with prizes for the best picture. Tooth brushes and toothpaste are supplied by OAMS.
