Oral Health Information

Bear River Head Start is committed to the health of you and your family, including good oral health. Dental Decay is one of the most prevalent diseases affecting young children today, 5 times more common than asthma. To help educate parents and caregivers and prevent the spread of this disease, Bear River Head Start is dedicated to the Oral Health of our kids. We have integrated a new oral health curriculum into our lesson plans and teach proper brushing techniques. One of our health requirements is that a dental exam and any needed treatment is received for all enrolled children. This ensures that your child is healthy and ready to learn and have fun. Please take a few minutes to educate yourselves!
