A Warwick dental practice is calling on schools and nurseries to get involved in a new scheme aimed at helping children learn about the importance of looking after their teeth.

A&H Dental in West Street is launching its new school dental health programme this month, a project led by two registered dental nurses Ana Tout and Annie Davidson, who are also qualified oral health educators.

Schools and nurseries can bring groups of children to the practice for free sessions, during which staff will talk about healthy eating, good dental health and what to expect when they come the dentist. Every child will receive a dental goodie bag to help them keep up the good work when they get home.

Principal dentist Adam Precelton said: “It’s important to teach good dental health from a young age so it becomes a habit for life. Our nurses are passionate about taking our prevention ethos into schools and so far we have had a fantastic response with visits to around 200 local children already arranged.

“It is an exciting new project and we look forward to a bringing our TeethRex brushing puppet to a school near you soon.”

Any schools and nurseries wishing to find out more about the programme can call the practice on 01926 499991.
