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.
