What are we doing for national smile month?

The team at crescent dental are taking part in the two minute challenge! We are taking two minutes everyday out of our busy schedule to brush our teeth! Brushing together for a whole two minutes is very fun! Make sure you have your timer at the ready! The average brushing time is 46 seconds so using a timer to brush is very helpful as you realise how long two minutes actually is! Wow!

Crescent Dental Care have also had visits from our lovely patients during this half term, the children have had lots of fun coming in and learning about oral health, they’ve also had lots of fun brushing Rory the lions teeth!

What are you doing to improve your oral hygiene this month?

Are you brushing for two minutes twice a day using a fluoride toothpaste?

Have you cut down on sugary foods and drinks?

Are you visiting your dentist regularly?

Lets all aim to improve our oral hygiene by starting this month with the rest of the nation!

Happy 40th Brithday National Smile Month!!
