Smile Saver Container Program


Our Smile Saver Container Program is staffed by Dental Hygienists who work directly with school nurses to educate, inform and bring awareness to the importance of oral health. 

Program Components

The program name developed from the actual “Smile Saver Containers” that we provide to the schools at no charge. These containers contain an oral health curriculum that may be used by the school to provide oral health education. The activities of the program include: 

  • Onsite nurse consultations
  • Participation in school health fair, parent meetings, and career days
  • Providing toothbrushes to the school
  • Promotion of school-wide oral health education presentations

In addition to the invaluable Smile Saver Containers, participating schools receive:

  • Toothbrushes
  • Tooth Saver Necklaces
  • Oral health education for the entire school by HCPH Dental Hygienists
