Our aim is to reduce the tooth decay in Hillingdon and improve the oral health of our population. We work together with the London Borough of Hillingdon and the Clinical Commissioning Team in Hillingdon to achieve this and offer the following:
We Offer a Supervised Tooth Brushing Programme to nursery and primary schools, for children in nursery and reception classes. If your school would like more information please contact our team below.
We run regular training for all health and care partners including our 0-19 health visiting teams, our school nursing teams, our looked after children’s teams and children’s centres.
We offer support at local parent/carer/health groups with advice including improving oral health, moving on from bottle to cup and visiting the dentist.
We also promote and attend oral health events such as National Smile Month, No Smoking Day and Mouth Cancer Awareness Month.
We have adopted ‘Aggie the Alien’ from the Clinical Commissioning Team to help us educate the children of Hillingdon with taking care of their teeth.
