Land of Smiles

Land of Smiles is a fun, age-appropriate show that teaches children in kindergarten through third grade about good oral health care. Delta Dental has been providing the Land of Smiles program to schools since 2002 and has taught more than one million children in Missouri.

In 2020, Delta Dental shifted the Land of Smiles program from a live show that visits schools to a virtual Land of Smiles experience for students due to COVID-19. They are following federal, state and county guidelines to determine when it is safe to resume the in-person show. Learn more at www.landofsmilesmo.org.
