Did anyone watch the shocking programme on channel 4 last night. If you didn't it was the amount of rotten teeth that the NHS have to remove from preschool children that was the most shocking.

 

I would really like to make a display around brushing teeth and avoiding sugary drinks. Does anyone know where I can get any posters / leaflets / other material to support this?

Our local dentists practice manager visits us. We have a brief discussion with the children on dental hygiene, healthy foods and drink.

Then they can play with the puppets, masks etc. They often give out leaflets too for parent/carers and little dental care books for the children.

We also have a playdough dental set, which can open discussions on teeth care.

Have you looked on the Oral B site, or Colgate etc.

Your county should have an oral hygiene specialist...they may well come in and do talks/displays and provide posters for you....like cait i would also suggest the smile 4life campaign (you can get certificates for different levels if thats your thing) ...in this area it is a huge problem and there is a regular slot every thurday morning to remove children's teeth under the age of 5....AWFUL
