National Smile Month-Shrewsbury Orthodontic Centre's presentation to Oak Meadow Pupils

 

 

National Smile month takes place between 16 may and 16 June.  Leanne and Karen, members of our tream, on June 8th 2017 presented an educational interative discussion to over 80 pupils at Oak Meadow Primary school, covering the 3 key messages:

  1. Brush your teeth last thing at night and at least one other occasion with fluoride toothpaste
  2. Cut down on how often you have sugery foods and drinks
  3. Visit your dentist regularly, as often as they recommend

We played our part in raising awareness about important health issues, making a positive difference to pupils about their oral health.

Almost all dental health problems are preventable and this is what National Smile Month and the team are trying to draw attention to and promote through positive messages and education.

We highlighted the devastating effect sugar can have on the pupils oral health and be conscious to how often they are comsuming it.

Change4Life was also discussed, 'rethink your drink', showing the pupils how much sugar are in popular drinks and alternative snack choices which contain less salt, sugar and saturated fats which are healthier and hopefully prevent nasty diseases developing in later life.

Toothbrushing APP's were discussed to assist with brushing for two minutes, while listening to their favourite song (Brush DJ- a free APP to download on most devices).

The talk was very interative and very positive response feedback was given by both pupils and teachers.

Thank you to Oak Meadow Primary School.
