The Teeth Team – Improving Child Oral Health

The Teeth Team – Improving Child Oral Health

543 Dental Centre and Genix Healthcare, both members of the Association of Dental Groups (ADG), are dedicated supporters of the Teeth Team charity.

 

The well-established school-based supervised tooth brushing programme aims to promote the importance of oral health among children, reducing inequalities and instilling effective dental routines in young people.

The charity’s recent review of dental health among children involved in the scheme found an overall reduction in the presence of decayed, missing or filled teeth (dmft) in the past year. The number of those needing treatment reduced from 25% to 19% between January 2014 and May 2015.

This is encouraging news for both the public and the profession, but with work still to be done, it’s important for all to get involved and help improve oral health for the next generation.
