Kids Planet Day Nursery benefits from the launch of 'Learn to Love the Dentist'

Kids Planet Day Nursery

For many years Dr Greg and his team have been challenged by what they have seen as a lack of improvement in the condition of kid’s teeth. So who is going to step up and make a change?

The team was delighted to launch a new initiative called ‘Learn to Love the Dentist’, the first benefactors were the kids of Kids Planet Day Nursery who had Adlyn Burton, Dental Therapist and Project Coordinator and Gemma Lucas, Dental Nurse from Love the Dentist Salford deliver the first session. The feedback was fantastic and the kids and teachers really enjoying the afternoon.

“Helping the kids understand what they are eating, good and bad sugars and how to brush their teeth are such important basics today” said Adlyn, “making it fun and memorable so they can take the knowledge home is what we want to help achieve”.

In the UK tooth decay is the most common reason for hospital admission in children aged between 5 – 9 with over 26,000 children admissions for an almost entirely preventable disease. The Learning to Love the Dentist team are targeting more schools in the outreach program and are also running in-house monthly sessions at Salford for kids and parents.

If you would like your kids school or nursery to be considered by the team please email or call and speak to Adlyn Burton on 0161 745 9429
