NO MORE TEARS AND TANTRUMS

If your child refuses to brush their teeth it can make bedtime a nightmare. Plus, bad brushing habits can set your child up for a lifetime of tooth decay, infection and gum disease. But it doesn’t have to be this way…
That’s why we created the Toothbrushing Academy – a fun way for your child to fall in love with brushing their teeth. Think giant toothbrushes, animal brushing stations and jungle-themes dental surgeries!

PREVENT DECAY

Over 25% of 5-year-olds in England have tooth decay and over 45,000 kids had teeth extracted in hospital in 2018. The sad thing is that it’s entirely preventable with a few simple habits!
We’ll provide a gentle polish to help your child get used to the idea of visiting the hygienist. We’ll also discuss diet and nutrition, ways of preventing tooth decay, and ideas for healthy drinks and snacks – so your child doesn’t become a statistic!

PERSONALISED ORAL CARE ADVICE

At the end of the academy your child will get a special certificate and have their photo taken in a graduation gown. These happy memories and sense of achievement helps your child look forward to their dental appointments and prevent fears & phobias!
You and your child will also go away with personalised oral care advice, including any “tooth selfies” we’ve take with our intra-oral scanner.

What happens during the Toothbrushing Academy appointment?

Three fun steps to become the Toothbrushing graduate!

  1. The brushing station: It’s always a huge hit with children, who love using the oversized tooth brushes on our animal friends before learning how to clean their own teeth with their parent. Photos and videos are encouraged for reference (and a great selfie opportunity), and we’ll also recommend the best evidence-based products for your child to use at home – we have a wide range of options for children of all abilities.
  2. The dental surgery: We’ve kitted out our bright, jungle (Marylebone) or underwater-themed (Chelsea) surgeries with TVs on the ceiling above the dental chair, a great way to help children relax while we chat with their parents. We’ll educate parents on starting a great brushing routine at home, and offer lots of advice on how to stick to it. We also take “tooth selfies” with our intraoral cameras – radiation-free devices that are great for helping patients and parents understand what’s going on inside their mouth.
  3. Hygiene: We’ll provide a gentle polish to help children get used to the idea of a visit to the hygienist treatment, which will be recommended when they’re a little older. We’ll also discuss diet and nutrition, ways of preventing tooth decay, and ideas for healthy drinks and snacks. We follow up all appointments with a detailed email, including any “tooth selfies” we’ve taken and personalised oral care advice.
