Would you know what to do if you knocked out an adult tooth? Yikes!!! This week, dental hygienist Viv and dental nurse Angela, will be out visiting Year 4 children in 19 local primary schools! The session will give the children and their teachers confidence to deal with a dental emergency that may occur as a result of playing sport. We will also talk about prevention too, especially when it comes to playing sports, and the importance of wearing a mouthguard.
We have been working with Aberavon RFC for several years now. Donating our time, and sharing our expertise with our local community is one of the most rewarding parts of our profession. Viv and Angela tell us that the enthusiasm the children show during these sessions is infectious. We hope that these visits are an excellent way to introduce oral health messages and ‘the dentist’ at an early age.
