Top tips for teeth

 

Overview

The Top tips for teeth program was developed for Koori children in primary and preschool in the LaTrobe Valley by the LaTrobe Community Health Service. The goal of this program was to improve oral health knowledge, attitudes and behaviours. This program included an after-lunch brushing program and four culturally-appropriate education sessions. Top tips for teeth developed culturally-sensitive resources, including magnets, newsletters and information sheets. As a result of the success of this program, oral health has been included as part of the school curriculum and Top tips for teeth is part of the Koori Health and Wellbeing Project.
