We have had a special visitor in EYFS to teach us about keeping our teeth healthy. She brought along her special friend Charlie the Crocodile too! We talked about using a small brush and a pea sized amount of fluoride toothpaste. Using Charlie we looked at making sure that we brush all of our teeth with the help of an adult. We learned that we should spit out any extra toothpaste and avoid rinsing out our mouth. We also talked about the importance of visiting the dentist regularly. You may like to talk about these things with your child at tooth brushing time.
Charlie will be staying with us in school for a while and we will be practising brushing his teeth. The children have also all received a toothbrush and toothpaste to help them keep their teeth strong and healthy at home.
