Who is eligible for Captain Supertooth Visits?

Only children in Pre-K through third grade who reside in the state of Oklahoma are eligible for this program. For children of other ages or in other states, see our list of other online oral health education programs.

Who can schedule a Captain Supertooth Visit?

Teachers, principals, or school nurses can schedule visits for their schools/classes.

Event coordinators can request appearances for health fairs, day camps, or other child-focused events. (Limited availability.)

How long does a visit from Captain Supertooth last?

Visits generally last 25 minutes depending on the crowd size and interaction.

How many students can participate?

The ideal setting is a group of 75-100 students in a cafeteria or gym.  We recommend dividing the students by grade level, so the Captain can adapt the presentation to suit the age of the students.  Single or multiple performances are available.  The Captain Supertooth Coordinator will work with you to devise the best possible program for your students.

What does the school need to provide?
  • Presentation venue (cafeteria, gym, classroom)
  • Private changing room or enclosed area located close to the performance space where the Captain can change into his/her costume.  (Cannot be student restroom but can be faculty restroom.)
  • A table to set up in the performance space for use during the presentation. (card table or 6ft. table, etc.)
What does it cost?

Captain Supertooth is a program of the Delta Dental of Oklahoma Foundation and is provided free of charge.

What are the requirements for a visit?
  • Teacher must be present during the visit.  
  • Schools must be located in the state of Oklahoma
  • Children must be in one of the following grades:  Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd
  • Teacher must request visit by using our online booking form.
Why is the program limited to pre-kindergarten through third grade students?

The Captain's presentation is developmentally designed to effectively communicate oral health basics to children ages 4-8.  Students beyond 3rd grade tend to be "too cool" for a costumed superhero.

Will children receive toothbrushes?

Captain Supertooth will deliver toothbrushes to the classroom when the visit occurs.

What if I need to cancel or reschedule a visit?

If cancellation or rescheduling is necessary, please contact us as far in advance as possible.
