The workshops are attended by dental offices and oral health educators who stop by schools, nursing homes, community centers, or the workplace to provide oral health education.
Workshops work well because they encourage interactivity between the person leading the workshop and the participants. It’s a relaxed atmosphere that encourages questions and natural conversation – so all important questions are covered.
Include participants in activities that require them to do something instead of sitting and listening. Whether doing handicrafts for children making their own mouth models or groups of office workers deciding which food contains the most sugar, by actively participating in these activities everyone learns something positive about their oral health.
Be sure to target your workshop and messages to the people you will be attending. Here are some of our ideas to get you started:
- The role of our mouth and teeth.
- Oral health for people with special needs.
- Group activities and support.
- Dental care and routine for the whole family.
Offices and workplaces
- Smoking cessation and alcohol policy.
If you’re running a workshop and want people to attend, then you can.
Write down what your event is, where and when it is and it will be listed on our events page for all of our visitors to find. From there, they can add it to their calendar and if you are raising funds at the event, backers can even donate online to your event.
