With the fast evolving news, Teeth Team are following advice and guidance from the Government and PHE (Public Health England) regarding the COVID-19 outbreak.
Teeth Team have taken the decision to suspend all dental assessments, Fluoride Varnish applications and tooth brushing in the school setting from today (Wednesday 18th March). Teeth Team will continually review the current situation and we will be in touch with all our schools at the beginning of the summer term, Monday 20th April, when guidance and advice for the health sector and schools may be different.
We remain committed to the dental health of all the children in the schools that we work with, but these are unprecedented times and as such we must react appropriately to the fast paced landscape of the current situation we are in.
We have advised our schools to use surplus stock of toothbrushes and toothpaste for any child they feel is in need of these resources at home during this time.
We will keep you updated on any further information we receive and we fully appreciate your cooperation and support at this difficult time. Any questions please do not hesitate to contact us on either 07875 078652 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Please keep encouraging children to brush their teeth at home. Please go to www.teethteam.org.uk for lots of useful tools and links to help keep your children’s teeth healthy whilst the tooth brushing is not happening within the school setting.
Here is a link to the letter that has gone out to our Teeth Team schools this afternoon.
