Dentist Visit with Dr Emilija

Dentist visit

Theodore bought a special visitor today - his mum. Theos' mum is a dentist and she came in to talk the children about our teeth and how to look after them.


Dr Emilija read the children a book all about about dental hygiene and then she demonstrated the technique on how to brush your teeth. Circular movements on the front and side teeth, the top and the back of the teeth. Emilija said it was also important to brush our tongue as sometimes left over food stays on the tongue and this then transfers back onto the teeth. She also reminded us that when we brush our teeth at night we cannot have anything else to eat. 


Rebecca asked the children before Emilija came to listen carefully and find out how many times a day do we need to clean our teeth. Maybe ask your child and see if they remembered!
