Oral Health Presentation Group 2

  1. To whom it may concern, We, the Kick Kavaties team, have put together this PowerPoint presentation to give you statistics and information on oral health care, and ways of improving oral health in your school! If possible we would love to attend an assembly to present to the children about oral health, its importance, and encourage the children to get involved and into the habit of looking after their teeth.  We encourage Parents, and other family members to come along, and we will have the school dental nurse with us available to answer any questions and make her-self known to the kids. It is an exciting and educational presentation and we hope we will be able to present it to your school in the near future! Looking forward to hearing from you, Sincerely The Kick Kavaties Team, Heather, Katie, Alida, Angela and Monique
