A visit from the dentist

This week, we have had a visit from the Park Hill dentists. They came in linked with our healthy living week we had before the half term holidays.

They told us lots of information about what kinds of foods were good for our teeth and we learnt some facts about our teeth as well. We didn’t know that we had 20 milk teeth as children.


We know the difference between healthy food and sugary food. We talked about what would happen to our teeth if we didn’t brush them and we didn’t like this picture at all. Your teeth will start to rot because of the sugar and it will slowly start to erase the enamel on your teeth. Enamel protects out teeth from sugar so we need to clean them regularly. 

We had a go at practising brushing our teeth for 2 minutes, making sure we brushed the teeth at the front, back and sides.
As a special treat, everyone got to take home a new toothbrush, toothpaste, a 2 minute timer, pencil, rubber and ruler. 

Thank you Park Hill for coming to visit us. We really enjoyed your visit.

How to continue the learning at home:

  • Talk to your child about the importance of brushing their teeth at least twice a day.
  • Visit a dentist every 6 months for a check up.
  • Use the timer to brush their teeth for 2 minutes.
