Our hygienists Adrienne and Gill and our dental therapist Ellen attend courses on a regular basis to keep them up to date with new technology and best practice.
Subjects covered so far this year already include tooth wear and management options for worn teeth especially in the elderly, early identification of oral cancer, updates on looking after children’s teeth, communication psychology, dental radiography and best sterilization techniques.
Children aged 3-4 at Christchurch Preschool, Church Crookham, recently enjoyed an informative morning when hygienist Gill went to give an oral health education talk. She talked about the roles of all who work in a dental practice, and what to expect during a dental check-up and hygienist visit.
She brought in lots of models and toothbrushes to show the children how to brush their teeth properly, and they really enjoyed being hands-on!
They all went home with a goodie bag containing the correct toothbrush for their age, toothpaste, two-minute timer and disclosing tablets that colour plaque pink so it can be easily seen when brushing! All the children and Gill really enjoyed their morning together, and the children took home all they need to keep their teeth healthy!
