SCHOOL-BASED PROGRAMS

A working model that creates a culture around behavior change towards oral health by providing ongoing care and education in local schools. 

WHY SCHOOLS?

Schools are an ideal location for the Unspoken Smiles outreach model because they allow our Fellows to reach a large number of children with information and instruction that ultimately y instill
healthy habits.

Unspoken Smiles Fellows/volunteers visit classrooms to perform age-appropriate and culturally - tailored demonstrations for oral hygiene and nutrition and to engage the children in games and activities to help them understand how to maintain a healthy smile. Daily classroom tooth-brushing routines are often established, as well
as annual fluoride varnish applications. 

 

It is by reaching children and reinforcing these messages that the sustainability of health outcomes may be achieved.

THE PROGRAM FEATURES

An appreciation of the importance of
oral health and its relationship to overall health and well-being

The allocation of adequate resources to improve oral health

Partnerships that adequately
frames oral health within school systems

Program Monitoring

Given the success of our school-based programs, by the end of 2019, we
plan to serve over 100,000 children throughout local school s in Harlem
and the Bronx, as well as expand our program to other countries like
Nepal, Morocco, and Nigeria.

 

With this project, we could enable an entire generation of children to have the lowest reported cases of tooth decay in history. This, along with the financial benefits of providing work for previously unemployed women will enable Unspoken
Smiles Foundation to not only revolutionize the health and well -being of our target
population, but to begin to tackle the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

We are always looking for schools and districts to partner with. Our very best ideas come from close collaboration with you, the teachers and students in our public school classrooms. You are the authentic audience for much of our work. When you work with us. You make our work better. When you get involved, we're able to reach and positively impact more children.
