TEETH TEAM VISIT STEP 1
SETTING THINGS UP
- We will come into school to give an Oral Health Education (OHE) talk to the staff, including showing class teachers and classroom assistants how to implement good cross-infection control procedures 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 the school and apply a fluoride varnish to your child if you have signed the consent form.
- Annual or biannual assessment - one of our dentists will visit the school and carry out basic examinations to check your child’s teeth. Letters are sent home to you if a visit to the dentist is recommended.
