When it comes to improving oral health, the arts can play a role. Two key determinants of health are a lack of oral health information and an individual’s level of educational attainment. The Delta Dental Making Smiles Happen® Arts in Education Initiative addresses both of these determinants by reaching thousands of students across the Commonwealth, increasing access to the arts and oral health education information.
The Delta Dental Making Smiles Happen® Arts in Education Initiative awards grants to K-12 teachers and schools to enhance classroom instruction with arts-based field trips or in-school experiences connected to core curriculum.
