Great School Speakers Bureau
& National Children's Oral Health Foundation outreach efforts focus on educating families, particularly children, in under-served areas about the importance of dental health and how to prevent tooth decay and disease.
Great School Speakers Bureau & National Children’s Oral Health Foundation mission is to advance dental health and access. Statistics show that children in the U.S. lose nearly 750,000 school hours each year due to dental problems. In addition, according to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, untreated tooth decay is nearly twice as common among Hispanic primary school children as non-Hispanic whites despite being largely preventable.
Pérez, the Hispanic culture’s tooth fairy equivalent, visits schools and
attends oral health related community events to discuss with children the
importance of good dental health. He also hands out copies of the educational
story of “Las Aventuras del Ratoncito Pérez” (“The Adventures of Ratoncito
Pérez”) and toothbrushes. Sponsored by: Delta Dental Insurance
