Brush up! Help improve local children’s oral health

by Dentaid (BrightBites programme)

BrightBites need volunteers to go along to their local nurseries, schools, childcare settings & organisations that work with young children and their families, to deliver fun, interactive sessions on mouth health. We would really like to target areas where the oral health needs of children are greater, so we are relying on volunteers’ local knowledge to target these areas. We would like volunteers to get in touch with schools, nurseries and groups to offer to go along and deliver the programme.
We provide a range of resources to support the volunteers for the session, which includes a toothbrush and tube of toothpaste for every child seen.
