Kiwi kids' dental health is in crisis! Together we can turn the tide and prevent young children's dental pain and extractions.
Up to 90% of New Zealand 5-year-olds have tooth decay! This crisis in young Kiwi kids' dental health prompted FAMILY TEETH MATTERS to develop a creative, entertaining educational programme inspiring transformational change in children's dental health, particularly in low decile communities.
A fun-filled school stage show featuring DETECTIVE SUGAR SPOTTER and the accompanying educational book provided for school libraries is written specifically to inspire healthy habits in kindergarten and primary aged children AND their families.
Beginning with raising parents' awareness and equipping them to develop healthy family eating and dental practises is the vital point of difference that sets FAMILY TEETH MATTERS apart.
Our volunteers need your help to sponsor the school educational programme for parents and kids, to provide copies of DETECTIVE SUGAR SPOTTER books for school libraries, and to supply attending families with free dental packs.
Thanks for helping us create happy and healthy smiles on Kiwi kids' dials!
