What We Have to Offer

Teeth on the Go is a comprehensive program designed to teach kids about proper oral hygiene. We offer our free Teeth on the Go learning kits to teachers, daycares and dental offices all throughout the state.  Additionally, those in Louisville & Lexington can sign up for a visit from Marshall Molar.

What are Teeth on the Go Kits?

Our Teeth on the Go kits can be requested by teachers, daycares, or dental offices from anywhere in the state. Our learning kits are free of charge. Once you’re finished using the kit in the classroom, we do require educators ship them back to us via a pre-paid FedEx slip we enclose with the package.

The kits include the following:

  • One week’s worth of lesson plans for grades K-2 and grades 3-6
  • Activities and worksheets that can be photocopied for mass distribution
  • Oversize tooth and toothbrush model to demonstrate good brushing techniques
  • CD of The Brush-A-Long song
  • DVD about oral health care for children
  • Children’s books about oral health
  • And much more…

Teeth on the Go kits are available statewide

How can I request a school visit from Marshall Molar and the dental students?

Requesting a visit from Marshall Molar is easy. Currently we can only accommodate schools in the Louisville and Lexington areas. We are partnered with the University of Louisville and University of Kentucky dental students, and, as a fundraiser for their class, they volunteer to visit schools in their local areas on days and times they are free from class.

If you reside in either the Louisville or Lexington areas, please Contact Us to request a presentation at your school and we will be in touch shortly.

The Teeth on the Go presentations last approximately 30 minutes and can accommodate up to 200 students in a gymnasium, auditorium, school cafeteria, or library. If the presentation is for a smaller group of students, a classroom setting will be perfect. At the end of each presentation, each student will receive a free toothbrush and have the opportunity to meet Marshall Molar.

The Teeth on the Go Program was formed in 2003 along with our relationship with the University of Louisville Dental School to educate local youth about the importance of taking good care of their teeth. Over the years, we have expanded our program with new learning kits and additional school partners to make our program accessible statewide.
