TEETH TEAM VISIT STEP 1
SETTING THINGS UP
- We will give an Oral Health Education (OHE) talk to the staff, including showing class teachers and classroom assistants how to implement good cross-infection control policy in regards to tooth brushing and maintaining the toothbrush racks.
- The classes also receive an OHE talk when we initially set up the programme, including showing the children how to brush their teeth.
TEETH TEAM VISIT STEP 2
- Biannual fluoride application - our dental nurses visit each school and apply a fluoride varnish to the children for whom we have signed consent forms.
- Annual or biannual assessment - one of our dentists will visit the school and carry out basic examinations to check the children’s teeth. Letters are sent home if a dental need is suspected.
