Dentist Visit


On Friday KS3 had a visit from a dental hygienist named Laura, she worked for the NHS and her job was to visit schools and give children great advice on how to look after their oral health. She began by showing Green Class how to properly brush their teeth for 2 minutes. The children had a go at brushing giant models of mouths, with a giant toothbrush. She then moved onto the different types of toothbrushes that we use. Green Class liked the electric toothbrushes as they felt tickly on their hands! Laura had lots of bags of sugar, and the children had to guess how much sugar was in certain drinks and sweets, they were shocked that one packet of Fruit Pastels contained all 7 grams of your sugar allowance per day! Some tips Laura gave were to eat healthy snacks like apples, milk and pears, however if you want a chocolaty treat, have it straight after the meal. Green Class had a fun session with Laura and learned some helpful tips.
