The SK Oral Health Coalition would like to introduce you to a new and exciting initiative that we have partnered with Canada’s Tooth Fairy to deliver – it is the first ever  SASKATCHEWAN SMILE DRIVE.

SASKATCHEWAN SMILE DRIVE is an event held throughout the month of April, National Oral Health Month. In April we encourage individuals and groups to collect toothbrushes and toothpaste for children in need of these supplies. There are thousands of fami…lies in Saskatchewan who cannot afford basic oral health supplies. All items collected in Regina and Saskatoon can be dropped off at the collection centres listed below and donations will be delivered to local charities throughout the province. All of the donations will stay in Saskatchewan!

Here you will find a SASKATCHEWAN SMILE DRIVE poster. We ask that you participate in this exciting event by donating, and we also request that you forward this message along with the poster to your partner’s and stakeholders.  SMILE DRIVE POSTER

Creating a Tobacco Free Future for the People of Saskatchewan

Posted by admin On December - 10 - 2014Comments Off

In conjunction with National Non-Smoking Week, this professional development seminar is being planned as an interdisciplinary event. Research shows that support and advice from a trained health provider can double a person’s chances of quitting tobacco successfully.


This program gives health providers the skills and tools they need to talk effectively with their patients and clients about quitting smoking.


Providers will learn:

* Effects of tobacco dependence and challenges people face when trying to quit or cut back, including special groups with unique challenges

* Supportive, non-judgmental techniques for talking with patients and clients about tobacco use and quitting, including positive, proven strategies that help people quit

* General information about types of tobacco and their effects on health

* What tobacco cessation programs and services are available in Saskatchewan
