As a strategy of bring children that usually don’t go to the dentist because of school’s schedule or the parent’s job, we created the “Cine-pipoca”. In 2013, emerged an idea to join recreation with supervised toothbrush activities and general orientations of oral health, fluoride application and epidemiological evaluation. So, this work is characterized by being a report of an activity that the aim is to reach the territory children, teach oral health to them and introduce them to the dental treatment. The “Cine-pipoca” is organized and realized by the oral health team with the participation of the nursing and the community health workers (CHW) of the Family Health Strategy of the Municipal Health Center Milton Fontes Magarão. The event is realized during the school’s vacation or after Children’s Day and Christmas and has as a priority, the vulnerable users. To participate is necessary to present the vaccines card which will be evaluated and updated by the nurse. Then occurs the oral health promotion with orientation of oral hygiene and healthy eating. After this, the children watch a movie previously chosen with snacks. The positive results encourage the professionals that participate of this project, since the beginning had an increase of the vaccinate card updated, from 49% in September 2013 until 89% in September 2015, benefiting more than a thousand kids. So, this work offered a contribution to the increase of the promotion and prevention of the integral health with multidisciplinary support trough the motivation and education of the territory children.
