Oral health is very important for everyone but especially for children. There has been an increase in decay in younger children’s teeth due to not brushing their teeth twice a day, having a high daily sugar intake and not having regular checks with a dentist (these should take place every 6 months).
At Beaconsfield we have annual visits from a dentist and an oral health educator who visit different key stages to remind our pupils of the importance of brushing their teeth twice a day and to explain the effects that sugary foods such as sweets and fizzy drinks have on their teeth.
Parents and carers are also invited to take part in our annual workshops to find out more about how they can ensure children develop good oral health routines from an early age.
Below you can read some important information from the Oral Hygiene Team within Ealing about these issues:
