Oral Health

Fun Oral Health

and Healthy Eating Activities for Children

Oral health is a key part of growing up fit and healthy. Childsmile would normally supporting our children at nursery and school with daily toothbrushing, regular fluoride varnish applications and classroom based oral health education.

While dental services are suspended nationally, preventing oral problems is more important than ever. We hope that everyone is still brushing brilliantly and choosing low sugar snacks and drinks between meals while we are stuck at home.

Here, Childsmile have put together a few fun activities and worksheets as well as some useful weblinks and Apps to help support families at home.

NHS Shetland Childsmile staff are still available to offer advice and support for families on 01595 743692 (please leave a message if no answer as checked daily) or email us on shet-hb.childsmile@nhs.net
