On May 27, 2022, a meeting of future mothers with a dental hygienist was held as part of the ADHS project. ADHS president Anna Sloviaková dipl.d.h., devoted her time to education in the Svet zdravia hospital in Topoľčany.

The management of the hospital expressed interest in further cooperation.
On June 4, 2022, on the occasion of the MDD in Veľké Uherce, an educational stand was created as part of the ADHS project as part of the journey through the fairytale forest. Education was carried out by ADHS vice-president Katarína Žiaková, dipl.d.h. dressed as a tooth fairy. Approximately 300 children took part, accompanied by family members, as well as future mothers. In this way, three modules of the ADHS project – Generation without decay were realized.
Module 1. You will be a mother, you can protect your baby.
Module 2. Mom, dad come with me!
Module 3. We guard the six.
