Children’s Dental – Resources for Healthy Teeth Toolkit

Cabell County FRN is proud to launch our “Resources for Healthy Teeth Toolkit”.  The information in the Toolkit is compiled to make it easy to access a variety of different materials to help parents and programs promote good oral health and help children have healthy teeth and smiles for life.  Examples include: national children’s dental health campaign, tips for healthy teeth, find a dentist, lessons to use with students, and fun activities for children.  This project is done in collaboration with Marshall University and DentaQuest foundation.
