An Exciting Learning Opportunity For Your Students!

To ensure that kids have a healthy smile that lasts for a lifetime, the key is getting them started on good oral health habits at a very early age. However, often times the only exposure that kids get to oral health information is from their parents at home, or during their occasional, regularly scheduled visits to their dentist. So how can we improve this process and help kids learn more about oral health care so they can have a healthier smile as they grow up? Simple! We bring the information to them in the place where they learn new and exciting things every day - school!


At Embrace Our World Orthodontic, we are proud to offer a special program for teachers that will teach their students all about the importance of oral health and dentistry. We work with local schools and teachers in the Saint Louis, MO community, sending friendly and experienced members of our staff to present a fun and educational lesson to students. The duration of each presentation is approximately 25 - 30 minutes. Each student will also receive a bag containing oral hygiene goodies including a toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss. To learn more about this special program just for teachers and students, check out the information below.


Customized Oral Health Lessons For Grades K - 5th

This program is designed to correlate with the state standards in personal health and preventative care for grade levels K - 5th. For each grade level, we have crafted a lesson that is easy to understand, engaging, and effectively builds up a great foundation of oral health care knowledge for kids. When beginning the program at the Kindergarten level, we only start with the basics, but as the kids get older, we build on previous lessons to provide them with a more comprehensive understanding of the importance of oral health and their role in maintaining their smile. Our lessons broken down by grade are as follows:


Grades K - 1

  • The Importance of Teeth

  • Keeping Our Teeth Healthy

  • The Dentist


Grades 2 - 3

  • Primary & Adult Teeth

  • Keeping Our Teeth Healthy

  • Decalcification & Cavities


Grades 4 - 5

  • The Importance of Good Oral Health

  • Brushing & Flossing

  • Gingivitis & Periodontal Disease

  • The Importance of Wearing Mouth Guards

  • Orthodontics
