Oral Health Zone Program

Building Healthier Communities Through Oral Health Zones

As the core of all America’s ToothFairy activities, each Oral Health Zone (OHZ) engages all community stakeholders in a comprehensive approach to breaking the cycle of childhood tooth decay and the devastating effects it has on their communities.

  • Civic organizations can identify need and raise funds to support the delivery of oral health services.
  • Businesses can provide funding and promote community events highlighting the importance of oral health.
  • Government officials can support preventive services and oral health education.
  • Schools and other education centers can improve the oral health literacy of community members.
  • Faith-based organizations can participate in outreach activities with underserved populations.
  • Healthcare providers can deliver vital preventive and restorative oral health services.
