Montem Academy Nursery had a visit from a very special lady last week. She led the activities with the children and the workshop for parents in order to try to raise awareness in children and their parents about their oral health. She brought her dragon friends with her and let the children brush their teeth with a large tooth brush. She spoke to the children about the importance of keeping their teeth clean and why they should always brush them in the morning and at night, she talked about eating healthy foods and snacks that are good for our teeth and bodies.
Through Dental Surgery role play the children showed a better understanding of the dental team and the dental environment, which we would expect, increased their confidence about visiting the dentist.
