Land of Smiles introduces new virtual show

Posted on October 17, 2020 in Children’s Oral Health

Delta Dental of Illinois Foundation, the charitable arm of Delta Dental of Illinois, is committed to improving the overall health and well-being of Illinois residents, with a focus on children.

Over the past 12 years, the Foundation’s Land of Smiles program has visited 892 Illinois elementary schools, educating more than 426,000 Illinois children from ages pre-kindergarten through third grade on the importance of good health care. This fall, the Foundation will launch a virtual Land of Smiles program and will be introducing new characters Captain Super Grin and Caz Cavity. Like the live presentation, the virtual program will teach kids how to properly brush, floss and use mouth was as well as encourage eating healthy foods and visiting the dentist regularly.

With tooth decay being the most chronic childhood disease, the Land of Smiles program helps children establish good oral health habits early and set the foundation for a lifetime of good oral health.
