Dartford children celebrate World Oral Health Day

Children at Bright Horizons Englefield Green Nursery and Preschool in Egham, Surrey recently celebrated World Oral Health Day.

The children made their own toothbrushes and then used these on a set of role play teeth to practice brushing techniques. Staff explained the importance of cleaning their teeth on a daily basis.  

“The children spent time talking about tooth decay using a potato activity where the children spoke about fillings,” said Nursery Manager Stacey Dowsett. “They used sweetcorn and a paste to feel the gap like a dentist would in their teeth.”
