About Smiles in a Box
The OHI takes a multi-pronged approach to disease prevention, by employing school teachers to educate students about healthy habits; providing students with toothbrushes, toothpaste, and fluoride; and sending information home about oral hygiene for family members. The goal of this organization is to increase awareness and motivate children to actively better themselves long-term. We create a fun and educational learning environment, in which children are presented with hands-on activities that allow them to keep track of their oral hygiene habits to promote healthy decision-making.
Our Goal :-
In the past, handwashing was not considered important, but in fact, hand hygiene has saved millions of lives since its implementation. Handwashing significantly reduces disease by removing and killing common but dangerous bacteria. This concept is the same for your mouth; brushing your teeth, a simple two-minute task done twice a day, can prevent cavities and gum disease. Gum disease not only affects your mouth but is directly linked to many other diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. The importance of brushing our teeth must be ingrained at a young age, just as washing our hands is. By ingraining healthy habits early on in life, we are empowering future generations to lead healthier, happier, and longer lives.
