Our new Oral Health Improvement Service was awarded to AP Smilecare of Preston New Road in Blackburn. They are a local dental practice and have been providing dentistry services for over thirty years.

As part of our Improvement Service in Blackburn with Darwen, AP Smilecare will be contacting every nursery and reception class to co-ordinate the roll out of an evidence-based oral health improvement intervention – supervised tooth brushing with the ‘Brush Busses’.

School staff will be trained to apply toothpaste onto toothbrushes in class and supervise every child up to 5yrs old to brush their teeth in nursery and reception.

For further information please email enquiries@apsmilecare.co.uk

Avoid Fizzy Drinks For Healthy Teeth!
