It’s never too early to start paying attention to your child’s oral health. Preschool allows children the opportunity to practice brushing while providing activities and lessons that focus on dental health.
Miss Gao took the children through the desired steps for oral hygiene practice by reinforcing a routine for daily tooth brushing.
She also carried out a demonstration of proper toothbrushing focusing on three surfaces of each tooth to be cleaned – the outer, inner and chewing surfaces. She stressed to the children to be systematic so as to ensure that all teeth are cleaned well.
Through this activity, children learnt and understood that brushing their teeth twice a day is not only important but also helps to maintain oral hygiene and prevent tooth decay!
