Supervised Tooth Brushing in Swindon

Date: 30 May 2024

Swindon has substantially higher rates of hospital tooth extractions in children per 100,000 than both the South West and England, particularly in 6-10-year olds and so prevention is important.

Eligible schools in Swindon will have been contacted by At Home Dental’s Big Brush Club about the supervised tooth brushing programme. We would encourage all eligible settings to sign up. The scheme is aimed at 4-5 year olds attending reception, nursery or preschool. The briefing and flyer below outline the issue and how schools can help to improve oral health through the adoption of supervised tooth brushing.
