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.

Ratoncito 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

If you know of an elementary school in Houston Independent School District and would like Ratoncito Pérez to go to that school to do a free presentation, please contact SaRita Dean.
