Timperley children embrace Dental Playbox visit

Date: 18 Sep 2019

Children at Bright Horizons Timperley Day Nursery and Preschool in Cheshire recently enjoyed a visit from Dental Playbox.

Dental Playbox’s key aim is to teach young children about the importance of good oral hygiene, healthy eating and to prepare them from an early age for a trip to the dentist.

“Dental Playbox’s puppet Alex spoke to the children about the importance of good hygiene and healthy eating,” said Deputy Nursery Manager Aimee Martin. “They then listened to a Peppa Pig storybook of a visit to the dentist. They looked at equipment you would see at the dentist in a book and was shown figures. The children practised brushing teddies teeth and took turns dressing up as a dentist.”
