Smiles 4 miles

 

Overview

Smiles 4 miles is an oral health promotion program that aims to improve the oral health of preschool aged children in Victoria. Dental Health Services Victoria (DHSV) partners with local organisations and early childhood services such as kindergartens and long day care centres to implement the program.

Smiles 4 miles encourages healthy eating, healthy drinking and good oral hygiene practices for children and their families through the promotion of three key messages:

The program also encourages early childhood services to provide information to families on local dental services to build a positive association with dental visits for both children and families.

DHSV is currently working with Aboriginal Health Workers to make the Smiles 4 miles program more culturally appropriate.
