What is the Brush to Win Program?
Northern Dental Care is offering the first Brush to Win program for elementary kids, kindergarten through grade four. We are encouraging all schools in Sault Ste Marie to participate. The Brush to Win School Program promotes good dental health by teaching elementary school children (kindergarten to grade 4) about the importance of daily brushing. Through the program, students are encouraged to brush their teeth daily for a month and use one of our downloadable monthly calendars to track their progress. Students who successfully complete the challenge (brush every day) can submit their completed calendar to their teacher for a chance to win a student or school prize. Classes can brush to win, November through March. (You choose any or all months to participate.) Each month completed will count as an entry.
Northern Dental Care is offering student prizes and school prizes.
Students prizes – A total of ten piggy banks containing 30 loonies will be awarded to students (two per month). Classmates of the winning students will receive a toothbrush.
School prizes – A total of two $200 prizes will be awarded to participating schools with the most entries.
How schools can participate
Register your class or school – Fill out a registration form that each teacher can fill out for their grade and email or fax back to Northern Dental Care.
Download: a teachers checklist, a sample letter to parents explaining the Brush to Win contest, and the Brush to Win calendar.
Please encourage your students to brush twice daily, morning and night. We will be happy to send one of our dental hygienists to do a brief oral health presentation for the students.
Collect student calendars and review the teachers checklist before submitting entries to Northern Dental Care. All entries received by April 24 will be entered into a random draw for student and school prizes.
