Brush up on Smiles is a major primary schools initiative to help support teaching about healthy teeth. The Oral Health Foundation and Mars Wrigley partnered in the initiative to help reduce high levels of dental decay amongst primary aged children.
Brush up on smiles aims to help pupils – and their families – learn what keeps teeth healthy. Over three in every ten children starting school in the UK have tooth decay. Between us, we can help reduce the high levels of tooth decay amongst young children through knowledge, awareness, and actions.
Below you will find links to download resources for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 pupils. These resources are designed to be used by teachers, but can equally be utilised by dental professionals to support educating pupils about oral health.
