This summer the team at Buckden Dental are helping families to take on The Big Family Brush-Up challenge.
Over the summer, we’re challenging families to focus on their brushing habits for a four week period. This is to help ensure your children are brushing thoroughly for two minutes, twice a day.
We’ve got lots of handy tips from Denplan’s Little Book of Healthy Smiles to ensure they’re brushing correctly, as well as ideas to make brush time fun! By the end of the six week period, we hope your children will be enthusiastic about brushing and be brushing thoroughly each day.
Tooth decay is a huge problem for many children, but can be entirely preventable with a good diet, regular dental visits, and a proper brushing routine. Visit www.simplyhealth.co.uk/bigfamilybrushup for information, tips and advice about how you can encourage your children to adopt a regular and thorough routine.
