National Smile Month 14 May-14 June 2018
National Smile Month is about sharing important messages about looking after our teeth, good oral health has so many benefits beyond our appearance, healthy teeth and gums prevent tooth loss and by keeping our teeth and gums healthy we are reducing our risk of certain cancers.
Let's celebrate National Smile Month with a Smiley!
St Georges Church Oral Education Visit
February 2018 Dr Farooqi and staff visited St George's Church to promote oral health to the toddler group, parents and elderly patients. A presentation covering information on teething, heathy teeth and gums, diet, brushing and the importance of regular visits to dentist was given to the group by Dr Farooqi. During the session, Dr Farooqi caught the attention of the children using his giant puppet teeth model to show the correct brushing technique, brushing teeth twice a day and talked about healthy eating. Dr Farooqi took questions from the parents, volunteers and staff members.
Church volunteers were very kind and fresh fruit and tea were shared with the our team and our staff gave out healthy teeth packs to the children.
'Thank you for coming with your team to support our toddler group. The session the team took was so useful to our parents. The parents were very happy and are grateful for your time'. Pastor Chrishanthy
