Each year we partner with almost 6,000 schools to teach over 800,000 kids in Australia and New Zealand the importance of brushing twice a day.

We know that tooth decay (dental caries) is the most common chronic childhood disease, however the good news is that it is mostly preventable, we also know that poor oral health early in life can affect a number of factors including: performance at school, social skills and self-esteem. Therefore, it is extremely important to establish a solid oral care regime from an early age.

The Bright Smiles Bright Futures™ program gives teachers, children and families the tools they need to make a good oral health a permanent part of their lives – focusing on building confidence to enable kids to take control of their own oral health.

The program is created in partnership with teachers, dental professionals and local cultural experts and fits into your existing curriculum, so you don’t need to add a new unit to your busy day.
