Girl Scouts can use their creativity and scouting skills to learn how their mouths link to overall health and well-being as part of the Delta Dental Foundation’s Smile Squad patch program. Scouts will review good dental habits, try oral health experiments, discover how hidden sugars can damage their teeth, and learn about the importance of brushing and reading every day for a healthy body and mind.
As girls complete the requirements to earn the Smile Squad patch, they’ll also get credit toward other Girl Scout badges, including My Best Self, Snacks, Eating for You and Staying Fit.
Materials and patches are available to your troop free of charge.
