Dental Team Visit to SunKids Centre at Eight Mile Plains

Here is our beautiful Josie dressed as a tooth fairy, with her wings and wand…

Last week, our practice was invited to give a little show to the kids at Sunkids Centre at Eight Mile Plains to talk/teach them about taking care of their pearly whites. We had the most wonderful time talking to the kids about brushing their teeth (with our large model of teeth), choosing to eat more healthy foods, and even singing a toothbrushing song! We even managed to convince our beautiful Josie to dress up as a tooth fairy! Here are some of the pictures of the things we discussed: Childcare Dental Visit We talked about brushing their teeth for at least 2 minutes a twice a day, and making sure they brush all sides of their teeth (e.g. – the lip/cheek side, the tongue/palate side, and the biting side). Childcare Dental Visit We got the kids to sort and stick pictures of food in the ‘HEALTHY FOOD’ (e.g. fruits and veges) and ‘SOMETIMES FOOD’ (lollies, ice cream, cakes) sections.

ToothBrushing Song

Got my toothpaste, got my brush
I won’t hurry, I won’t rush.
Making sure my teeth are clean
front and back and in between.
When I brush them for a while
I will have a HAPPY SMILE!

Our Great Team that went to Sunkids

Overall, it was a great experience, and hopefully, we get to do this more, because it is so cool when kids have the knowledge, and practice it!

We also have to give credit to the Carers/Teachers there who do this almost everyday! I don’t know how they do it!
