DENTAL ONE COMES TO YOUR CHILDCARE CENTER
Dental one is delighted to offer all childcare centers local to one of our clinics a day of fun and interactive learning about oral hygiene. At Dental One, we have a passionate team whose goal it is to spread their knowledge on all things dental.
One of our Oral Health Therapists and Dental Assistants will demonstrate to the children how to care for their teeth and go through ‘good foods’ and ‘occasional foods’. The day will go as follows;
– Oral Health Therapist and Nurse will read a picture story book about oral hygiene. ‘Dr Rabbit meets a brushalotamus’.
– Present a poster which illustrates how to perform oral hygiene. Followed by a demonstration on a large tooth model.
– A presentation on the importance of diet.
To the parents who consent, our Oral Health Therapists will be able to conduct a check up on their child. Followed by a dental report that is sent off to the parent. At the end of the visit, our team will hand out ‘goodie bags’ filled with oral hygiene products. The goodie bag includes a new toothbrush, tooth paste, floss, stickers and information on how to care for baby teeth and what the parents can expect when their child is losing baby teeth.
THE IMPORTANCE OF PREVENTION
Our primary teeth are critical to the alignment of our adult teeth, hence why we want to keep them until it is time for them to come out. If cavities and infections are caught early on we can prolong the life of the tooth.
We know that coming to the dentist can be a difficult time for some kids, the apprehension alone can cause a lot of anxiety for some. By having our team come to your childcare center we can prepare the children on what to expect when coming into a dental office. Our overall goal is to make coming to the dentist more comfortable and to spread the importance of oral hygiene.
