Scouting for Smiles

Since it was founded in 1907, the worldwide Scouting movement has encouraged countless young people in their physical, mental and spiritual development. Established about 100 years later, America's ToothFairy: National Children's Oral Health Foundation seeks to keep children from experiencing the problems of preventable dental disease. Recently, these two youth-oriented organizations teamed up to get kids involved in the fight for improved oral health.

Now, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts can earn colorful patches for learning about oral health, sharing their knowledge with fellow scouts, and reaching out to educate their communities. It's a great way to build leadership skills while performing a valuable public service — and it's one more way to help fight tooth decay and gum disease.
