The team from Brighter Smiles, Cornwall’s oral health programme, regularly visit primary schools, nurseries and family hubs setting up toothbrushing clubs, applying fluoride varnishing and delivering fun education sessions to help the children maintain healthy, happy smiles. Sadly but understandably our visits were postponed for several months due to Coronavirus.

However, to keep in touch with everyone and in support of National Smile Month (18th May – 18th June 2020), our Brighter Smiles team created a series of four virtual oral health education sessions for children aged 4-6. One video was added to this page each week throughout National Smile Month 2020 and will remain available as a resource thereafter.

We hope you enjoy learning about “The Functions of the Teeth”, “Toothbrushing”, “Tooth Decay”, and “Diet and your Teeth”:

The British Society of Paediatric Dentistry has also put together a selection of videos to help make toothbrushing fun for families.
