Hardip giving children of Christchurch School, Ealing, oral health instructions
Two members of Sparkle Dental Boutique, Ealing, Hardip Dhillon, (Dental Therapist) and Wing Tang (Senior Nurse) visited Christchurch School in Ealing on Wednesday 19th November, to help children to look after their teeth and smiles!
The children were so excited by the visit that Ms Laing, their teacher reported “one of my students brushed her teeth twice this morning because she thought you were coming in today.”
Armed with a giant toothbrush and model of the mouth, Hardip demonstrated how to brush teeth correctly and the importance of brushing for at least 2 minutes twice a day. Six children volunteered to have their teeth turn red and blue using disclosing tablets. They chewed on the disclosing tablets which turned their teeth red indicating new plaque and blue indicating old plaque.
Hardip said “It was great to see how enthusiastic the children were. Their hands went shooting up to answer any questions. They also were so very well informed about looking after their teeth!”
The children also helped Wing identify good and bad foods and drinks and they coloured in tooth related pictures.
Wing and Hardip presented the children with dental goodie bags, containing toothbrushes, stickers, sugar free sweets, dental puzzles and colouring pictures.
Ms Laing said “They were all so pleased to receive the goodie bags – they couldn’t wait to see all of the great things in it!”
Hardip and Wing are presented with a certificate of thanks from the children at Christchurch school
