What happens during the Toothbrushing Academy appointment?
Three fun steps to become the Toothbrushing graduate!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
We recommend visiting the Toothbrushing Academy when your child is 2 to 3 years old.
Toothbrushing academy lasts 30 minutes. However we know a lot of cases when children didn’t want to leave the clinic after! They loved it so much!:)
