From a Small Town in Colorado: How a community partner implements CATCH Healthy Smiles

Meet Kobi VanCleave with Prairie Family Center in Burlington, Colorado who shares her journey with implementing CATCH Healthy Smiles. Tooth decay is currently the most prominent chronic health condition among young people, impacting more than 50% of children. CATCH is on a mission to change this statistic by helping educators, like Kobi, to empower students in grades Pre-K through 2 to adopt positive oral health habits for life.

Thanks to support from Delta Dental, a generous corporate donor, our CATCH Healthy Smiles curriculum is available for free for school and Head Start educators, public health and dentistry professionals, and university students. Together, we can make every child’s smile shine brighter!
