There are plenty of ways you can support your students' oral health beyond Smile Squad visits:
- The Smile Squad action helps you explore the ways you can support good oral health for your school community, including fact sheets.
- Get involved with a formal program to support improved healthy and download further resources.
- Read the School operations Dental Service Policy on the Department of Education
Smile Squad has developed two brochures: Eat Well, Drink Well, Clean Well and an information brochure for parents and carers. The brochures can be downloaded from the Smile Squad oral health resources page and are available in English as well as Arabic, Dari, Chinese (simplified and traditional), Turkish, Urdu and Vietnamese.
