One44 on tour!!

On Tuesday 12th February we were invited into a primary school in Rotherham to talk to the foundation children about visiting the dentist, tooth brushing and the importance of a tooth friendly diet. We had a fantastic afternoon with a brilliant group of children who made us this fantastic card as a thank you!! It sat on reception with pride of place before being framed (as promised to the children at their request!) and displayed on the wall in surgery two. Thank you so much children we LOVE it!!

NATIONAL SMILE MONTH 2018

Today marks the start of National Smile Month, the UK’s largest and longest-running campaign to promote good oral health.
The three key messages are:-
•    Brush your teeth last thing at night and on at least one other occasion with a fluoride toothpaste.
•    Cut down on how often you have sugary foods and drinks.
•    Visit your dentist regularly, as often as they recommend.
The aim of National Smile Month is to ultimately improve the UK’s oral health by raising awareness of important health issues in a bid to make a positive difference to the oral health of millions.
Just like last year we are supporting the campaign in many various ways throughout the month and our “Dental Role Play” area is up again!….so feel free to bring you little ones down with you to your appointment and let them learn about the importance of oral health through play.
   

European Gum Health Day 2018

“Health begins with healthy gums!”
Saturday 12th May 2018 marks “European Gum Health Day”!! This is an international awareness day whose aim is to increase public awareness of the seriousness of gum disease, the health problems associated with it, and the importance of maintaining healthy gums. Healthy gum’s do not bleed!! Never just accept bleeding gums. If you are experiencing sore or bleeding gums please make an appointment and checked out.
“European Gum Health Day 2018 aims to remind people that – even if still often overlooked – gum health is a key factor for general health throughout life, and that gum disease is a relevant public-health concern because it is linked to very serious conditions, including heart disease and cerebrovascular disease,” says Xavier Struillou, co-ordinator of European Gum Health Day 2018.
