Dental Health Week
Call us on 4625 4897
Each August, our surgery participates in Dental Health Week. We visited many local schools and Pre-schools to educate young children on oral health care. To do this, we use puppets and many of our own self-made educational tools, read a giant book and hand out stickers and take-home packs. The Family Dental Care Tooth Fairy pays a visit and allows children to have photo time with her. We are offering our time and energy in the hopes we can make a change for the better in the life of our local kids.
Dental Health Week 2021
Because of COVID-19 lock-down, all school visits were cancelled due to infection control restrictions, therefore we were unable to visit our usual schools. In October 2021 our restrictions were lifted to allow us to travel more than 5kms from our LGA, which will allow us to still deliver our Oral Care packs to the schools. We will be donating approx 350 dental oral care packs in total to all children and their care givers this year.
Dental Health Week 2020
Dental Health Week was a quite a bit different this year! COVID-19 stopped all school visits due to infection control, therefore we were unable to visit our usual schools during the official Dental Health Week which is held in August every year. We were however lucky enough to reschedule most of our visits to November 2020 and we were able to see the children at Campbelltown Preschool and Bradbury Public School. We still dropped off Oral Hygiene packs for the the children at Amber Cottage in Ambarvale and Papilio Early Learning in Ingleburn. We donated 337 dental oral care packs in total to all children and their care givers this year.
Due to restrictions, only Dr Kaur, Kelly and the Tooth Fairy attended both schools, but the children were very happy to see us! Dr Kaur and the Tooth Fairy, educated the children on the benefits of good oral health, whilst Kelly took photos and co-ordinated with the staff in organising the visit. All children received a “Tooth Decay Repellant Kit”- which included a toothbrush, toothpaste, tooth timer and toothbrushing instruction pamphlet.
