Delta Dental Foundation Announces Grant to Raise Oral Health Awareness Among New Jersey’s Underserved Children
Deadline: June 16, 2007

In an effort to reinforce the importance of oral health education all school year long, the Delta Dental of New Jersey Foundation (<a href=""></a>) is offering its first Oral Health Education Initiative Grant to elementary schools in New Jersey Abbott school districts to initiate an oral health education program in their third-grade classes for the 2007-08 school year. Three schools, each from a separate district, will be chosen to receive a grant of up to $5,000 to fund their programs.

Applicant schools are asked to develop individual oral health education programs made up of ten monthly activities that help children understand the following: why it is important to maintain proper daily oral hygiene; how to properly brush and floss; the function of the dentist and hygienist; the relationship between oral health and food choices; and the relationship between oral health and overall health. The programs can include monthly activities such as an oral health bulletin board, a field trip to a dentist’s office, or reading a book about oral health.

The Delta Dental Oral Health Education Initiative Grant is open to all New Jersey Abbott elementary schools that include third grade.
