Smiles 4 Miles

Smiles 4 Miles assists early childhood services to encourage and promote good oral health habits and healthy eating among children in their care.

About Smiles 4 Miles

Smiles 4 Miles is an initiative of Dental Health Services Victoria (DHSV). Star Health is the local partner for Smiles 4 Miles in Port Phillip and Stonnington. We are responsible for engaging and supporting early childhood services to implement oral health promotion activities and achieve their Smiles 4 Miles award.

How do I get Involved?

If your child’s kindergarten or day care service is participating in Smiles 4 Miles, you will receive information and support throughout the year, as well as suggested activities for you to do at home with your child. Keep an eye out for updates in the newsletter and on noticeboards.

Children learn from watching and listening to adults around them, so healthy role modelling at home reinforces the key Smiles 4 Miles messages of eat well, drink well and clean well to help children develop lifelong healthy habits.
