Topic 1 ‘Call the Midwife’ – Mums & Gums

Tips for brushing teeth with children go to -> BrushBaby

‘Caring For Kids’ have a lovely little book for kids about the importance of early dental care.

Click -> ‘To be a Star’ is an enchanting story for young children introducing the importance of early dental care.

The Tooth Fairy’s mission is to make new stars in the sky using shiny milk teeth and a little fairy magic. However, when Anil loses his first tooth the Tooth Fairy doesn’t want it because it’s not clean enough.

This story follows Anil’s quest to ensure that when he loses his next tooth it can become a new star in the sky. It covers everything from cleaning teeth to choosing tooth-friendly snacks, and is essential reading to encourage good dental care.
