Oral health promotion in Vienna’s kindergartens and primary schools


The aim of the project to promote oral health in Vienna’s kindergartens and primary schools, which has been funded by both the WGKK and the “Wiener Gesundheitsförderung GmbH” using funds from the “Landesgesundheitsförderungsfonds”, is to create awareness amongst children, parents and carers for the importance of healthy teeth and so contribute towards improving the dental health of Vienna’s children.

The programme “Tiptopp. Gesund im Mund und rundherum” includes, amongst other things, learning about effective oral hygiene with the help of trained dental health personnel in the form of group prophylaxis (brushing teeth together).

Additionally, the tooth theatre programme “Im Mund geht’s rund“ has been developed, which familiarises children with the basic rules of oral hygiene in a playful manner.
