Sharing is caring – let’s work together to improve the future for our children!

12-06-2019

Oral hygiene and dietary habits are established during childhood.  So with a statistic of 1 in 4 5-year olds having tooth decay, there is still a need for change.

Over the years, Lisa has gone along to nurseries, scouts clubs, and schools to talk to the children about the importance of looking after their teeth.  The children have learnt about what developmental changes are going on in their mouths, what tooth decay is and how to prevent it.  They have been shown how to brush their teeth and use disclosing tablets, but also how to be careful to try to avoid the risk of trauma to their teeth.

In the UK it’s a recognised growing problem that we consume far too much sugar.  In fact we currently consume nearly 3 times the recommended daily intake of sugar.  There is also a growing awareness of the damaging health problems as a result of this, namely obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, inflammation, increasing the risk of heart disease and strokes.

Therefore as part of the visit, the children are encouraged to start thinking before they eat or drink…and to educate them towards making the right choices, after all…

Healthy habits at a young age can help children become healthy adults!

If you would like us to arrange a visit to your nursery, local school, or community group in the Thornbury area, then please contact us.

Testimonials

As a person with a fear of dentists who had not visited one in 8 years I can honestly say Dentist Tim Lindop and Nurse Lisa made me feel at ease. They were friendly and professional and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Tim took the time to thoroughly explain to me what he was going to do before beginning which took a lot of my anxiety away. After explaining my concerns Tim was very patient and understanding and the injections I received were very gentle. Excellent dental practice with exceptional staff, I won't be going anywhere else in future.
