The Caregiver Checklist is a great tool to bring to presentations on oral health or to health fairs. It is difficult for parents to do everything they are supposed to do, and a checklist can be an important tool in behavior change. Targeting parents, grandparents or guardians, the Caregiver Checklist can be used to help the caregiver to think through any changes they may want to make based on information you present to them. To avoid a caregiver just checking them all without thinking, you could ask something like, which of these items is the biggest challenge for your family?Print Now

This chart can be a take home activity for your students. It is an important tool for reinforcing the behavior changes in the training. There are three checkboxes each day: two for brushing, and one for flossing. This chart will last over a month. One option to make this more exciting would be to distribute it with little star stickers. Even so, children enjoy coloring the little stars.Print Now

Suggested Age Range: Ages 3+ without cutting; Ages 5+ with cutting; the concept of sugar combined with bacteria is what causes cavities targets older children and adults.
Print and cut out the pieces to make a puzzle. We recommend printing on cardstock paper if available. This puzzle is appropriate for ages 3+ without cutting and 5+ with cutting. Allow 5 minutes if the puzzles are precut and 10 minutes is the students will cut the pieces as part of your exercise. This puzzle demonstrates what can perhaps be a more complex process of how cavities develop. Every mouth has bacteria in it, and sugar feeds the bacteria. That is why keeping sugar off of the teeth reduces cavities.Print Now
