Good oral health is important to children's overall wellbeing as our teeth have such an important role to play in our lives. Our teeth help us:
- Communicate with each other
- Eat properly
- Feel good – a healthy smile can influence our relationships and careers by helping to give us a positive mind-set
Keeping our teeth healthy from an early age supports leading a healthy life as an adult. Learning to maintain good oral hygiene is key to healthy teeth and gums as we grow older.
The Healthy Tots programme has been developed to support your early years setting in teaching your children about oral health, so why not sign up here now?
