Keep your mouth healthy
“Hou je mond gezond !” is a nationwide educational project on oral health.
Central to the educational project is a visit, free of charge, by a dentist, dental hygienist, dental or dental prevention assistant to a primary school class or playgroup or an introductory visit by a primary school class to a dental practice. During the lesson on tooth brushing, the volunteer oral healthcare professional tells the pupils about the mouth and teeth, cleaning the teeth, cavities, tooth erosion and the dangers of snacking. More than 9,165 toothbrushing lessons have already been given to approximately 575,000 children in all the provinces of the Netherlands.
Evaluation has shown that three quarters of the oral healthcare professionals and 70% of the teachers expect the pupils to brush their teeth better after a Hou je mond gezond ! toothbrushing lesson.
