In EYFS we want to celebrate National Smile Month which is taking place from 17th May to 17th June.
We have emailed home a weekly toothbrushing chart to encourage twice daily toothbrushing. We have also emailed a handout identifying some recommended toothbrushing techniques and a leaflet with information on a selection of toothbrushing apps (to make the session more engaging).
Hopefully these resources will motivate your child to brush their teeth correctly, twice a day for two minutes with a fluoride toothpaste.
We would love to see any completed charts sent to us on Tapestry. We would also love to share some photos on our website/social media so If you would be happy for us to use a photo of your child brushing their teeth, please do send us these too on Tapestry. Children who complete any of these will receive a certificate.
Below is a short oral health video with ‘Dr Ranj and Super Tooth that you may want to watch’:
