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).

This oral health curriculum was developed in a "ready to go" format. Each of the six modules has complete lesson plan(s) including:
