Oral Health Promotion


Smiles 4 Miles

Smiles 4 Miles is an initiative of Dental Health Services Victoria (DHSV) which aims to improve the oral health of children and their families in high risk areas across Victoria.

Tooth decay is Australia’s most common health problem. Smiles 4 Miles assists early childhood services to encourage and promote good oral health habits and healthy eating among children in their care.

The program is delivered predominantly in preschools and is based on the World Health Organisation’s Health Promoting Schools Framework, an internationally recognised best practice approach.

CHIRP Community Health supports settings to work on the Smiles 4 Miles Program in Mount Alexander Shire. We engage and support early learning services to implement oral health promotion activities related to the three key messages of Smiles for Miles (Eat Well, Clean Well, Drink Well) and achieve their Smiles 4 Miles award.
