Children from Benalla family day care visited the Community Health Centre to learn how dentists aren't scary and were visited by the 'tooth fairy'.
North East Health helped celebrate Dental Health Awareness Week with a visit from the Tooth Fairy last Thursday in the Benalla clinic.
Children from Benalla Rural City Family Day Care, parents and carers were given a small talk on what to expect when visiting the dentist for the first time and what equipment is used.
It is hoped this will help alleviate any anxiety associated with the each child’s first visit to a dental clinic.
There were colouring competitions run for the week, and dental show bags given out to all children who attended the clinic for the week. Included in the bags were a toothbrush, junior tooth paste, dental floss, stickers and pamphlets for parents to read, encouraging children to look after their teeth and promote healthy eating and lifestyle from a young age.
The slogan for this year is Who is the Sugar Bandit in your house? It is viewed there is at least one person in each household providing too much sugar in their child’s diet — by buying soft drink, biscuits, lollies etc — and that children are not drinking enough water.
Many parents are unaware just how much sugar content there is in their child’s diet, and do not realise that what they believe to be healthy snacks could contain a large amount of sugar.
