The Tooth Tutor Program is designed to increase education and access to dental care beginning in childhood. The program provides classroom dental health education as well as school-wide support for oral health. Regular dental visits and good oral hygiene habits are emphasized to help prevent dental disease. Additionally, Tooth Tutor has expanded beyond prevention and now includes links with community oral health professionals. The program builds and maintains working relationships with students, families, and healthcare providers. These relationships decrease barriers and increase access to available resources. 

Welcome to FWSU, Lindsay!
