Toothapalooza 2023


Can you say, “Toothapalooza?”

More importantly, can you celebrate Toothapalooza with us?


What is Toothapalooza?

Toothapalooza is a community oral health event hosted by Delta Dental of Arkansas in partnership with science museums across Arkansas.

It offers free dental screenings, fluoride varnish treatments and take-home dental hygiene kits for children 17 and under and fun educational oral health activities for the whole family. Parents of children receiving dental screenings will also receive recommendations for any follow-up treatments that might be necessary.

Resources for those without dental insurance will also be provided.

Even admission is free—to the first 500 visitors who mention Toothapalooza upon check-in.


Why Toothapalooza?

Pain from cavities is one of the top reasons why children miss school or can’t concentrate in class. Yet cavities are almost entirely preventable with daily brushing and flossing and preventive care dentist visits.

Delta Dental of Arkansas hosts Toothapalooza to promote good oral health habits for healthy smiles that last a lifetime
