The Division of Dental Health, Virginia Department of Health, has developed an oral health education curriculum for elementary, middle and high school students that complements the Health Education Standards of Learning (SOLs). The Health Education Standards of Learning provide the framework for instruction of the knowledge and skills needed for students to lead healthy lives. The goal of this oral health curriculum is to educate children and adolescent students about the impact of health behaviors on oral and overall health. This curriculum provides Health/PE teachers, School Nurses, School Staff, and School Health Advisory Boards with oral health information and training materials to promote integration of oral health into school curriculums.
