Resources For Families

What happens during a Teeth Team visit?

The Teeth Team programme facilitates supervised tooth brushing sessions in primary schools, ensuring all pupils receive the dental care they deserve. It’s completely free and all parents and carers will be sent a consent form to sign before the programme begins. Over the course of a year, children are taught how to clean their teeth effectively, receive a fluoride varnish treatment to prevent tooth decay and have a clinical assessment from a dentist.
