On Wednesday the 29 th of January we had the dentist come to visit us at the nursery. The dentist was caring out a dental survey for Kingston and Richmond. I felt this was a good thing for the
children to take part in as they would receive a dental hygiene check-up in an environment that they are comfortable in, alongside their little friends for support.
To say the children enjoyed it was understatement! Nearly all children were happy to get on to the bed and been seen by the dentist, and were excited to collect their sticker at the end. We have now introduced teeth brushing in the nursery after meal times. This is to promote good dental hygiene and help support those parents at home who struggle with teeth brushing.
