Disappointed at yet another news piece about sugar being solely responsible for the current epidemic of rotten teeth in our children / young people. Poor oral hygiene is also a key player in what is a preventable malady. Children as young as 3 years old are being admitted to hospital to have ALL THEIR MILK TEETH removed – an appalling state of affairs.
Our Dental Playbox Project visits settings for the under 5s and educates children through the powerful medium of play not only how to look after their mouth, gums and teeth but also the importance of regular visits to the dentist.
