- National Smile Month runs from 15th May to 15th June.
- Claydon Dental will be visiting four primary schools to promote dental health among families in fun, interactive sessions.
- All children will get complimentary goody bags to help them stay healthy.
As Cheltenham’s newest private dental practice, Claydon Dental is excited to get involved in the community, and help educate children at local schools about oral health. What better time to undertake this adventure than during National Smile Month?
The aim of National Smile Month, taking place between 15th May and 15th June, is to improve the UK’s oral health. Organised by oral health charity, the Oral Health Foundation, the campaign hopes to raise awareness of important health issues. It aims to make a positive difference to the oral health of millions.
Claydon Dental are passionate about promoting preventative dentistry, and improving the oral health of local families. We want to ensure the children in our community have the skills and knowledge required to maintain a healthy smile. So Claydon Dental’s registered oral health education nurse, Nicky Pascoe, will be attending four schools in the Cheltenham area during National Smile Month to give educational presentations.
During these visits to Dun Alley Primary, Wardenhill Primary, St. Peter’s Catholic Primary, Lakeside Primary, and St. Mark’s Primary, Nicky will be providing fun and interactive educational presentations to over 1,000 Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 pupils.
Nicky explains what she’ll be doing in more detail: “I am really excited about this project. I’ll be covering the importance of good oral hygiene, healthy food choices, and regular dental examinations. It will include an opportunity for the children to ask their own questions, learn through playing and watching live demonstrations.”
“After getting involved in the presentations, all children will receive a complimentary Claydon Dental gift bag. This will include some of the tools discussed, and will help the children to keep their oral health in peak condition.”
