Are you preparing a talk on oral health for a school or local group?

To help to promote the benefits of good oral hygiene to adults and children there are a variety of educational items available for members to borrow.

Resources for children

We have a large collection of resources suitable for children. These are highlighted on the DVDs and Books for children pages.

To mark World Oral Health Day 2014 the FDI has produced an electronic children's book, The Tooth Thief which is available for iBooks, Kindle Fire and as a pdf.
