Health Improvement deliver training to Early Years staff, Childminders and Childcare Students on the National Standards for Toothbrushing Programme. The toothbrushing programme is delivered across all early years establishments on a daily basis and standards are monitored three times every year. Oral Health Education sessions for children and parents are delivered as part of the programme, including introductory visits to a dental surgery.
We also work in partnership with the Oral Health Directorate to support the Fluoride Varnishing Programme in specific early years establishments.
