Dentist Survey

On Tuesday 19th March we were visited by a dentist who came in to school as we were selected to take part in a Public Health Dental Survey for 5 year olds. Pupils were selected at random and consent received from their parents prior to the dentist coming into school. The dentist wanted us to remind all parents to take their children to the dentist regularly. All children aged 3-16 can have fluoride varnish painted on their teeth at least twice a year, to help strengthen their teeth and prevent tooth decay. If you do not have a family dentist, you can find your nearest NHS dentist at www.nhs.uk/Service-Search/Dentists/LocationSearch/3
