Have students make public education posters to hang around the school on oral health. Various topics can include: the importance of brushing and flossing on nutrition and appearance; effects of smokeless tobacco on the mouth (leads to cancer and ulcerations); the use of protective devices, such as mouthguards for sports; chewing gum-is it good or bad for teeth?; and early child care (leaving baby bottles full of juice or formula in a baby‘s mouth at night harms primary teeth; improper care of primary teeth can lead to a bad start for permanent teeth)
