UK Against Fluoridation

UK - Mobile dentist visits Durham to talk about teeth

TEETH were the top conversation of the day as children spent time learning how to look after their pearly whites.
Pupils from Gilesgate Primary School in Durham City spent a day in a mobile classroom which is touring the country to promote better dental health among children.
During the visit pupils got the opportunity to identify which food and drinks were good for their teeth and which were not.
The day was organised by mydentist, which has a practice in Framwellgate Bridge.
Manager Melissa Nicholson said: “Statistics show that 30 per cent of children didn’t see an NHS dentist between 2012 and 2014 and dental issues continue to be the main reason for children being admitted into hospital.
“Our aim is to change this trend by raising awareness of the free dental care which is available to children on the NHS, including fluoride varnish which should be applied to children’s teeth twice a year from the age of three, and also by showing children that looking after your teeth is not only really important, but it can also be fun.”
