A brush with the dentist at Nene Valley

Nene Valley Dentist

There were smiles all round at Nene Valley Day Nursery in Northampton as children received a special visit from a local dentistry student to learn all about oral hygiene.

At the award-winning setting on Northampton General Hospital Complex, pre-schoolers were delighted to welcome second-year student Kiyara Perera, who delivered a masterclass to the captivated group on how to brush properly and best care for their teeth, before handing out props including model teeth and labelled diagrams to help encourage best practice.

As part of the learning experience, children were able to explore books including ‘Why Should I Brush My Teeth?’, as well as toothpaste, mouthwash and electric toothbrushes, before each being given their own sand timer to take home to help regulate their brushing.

Nene Valley Day Nursery Deputy Manager, Hayley Baverstock explained;

“We are hugely grateful to Kiyara for taking the time to come and impart her expert wisdom. It is never too early to start building healthy habits and our children came away from the session feeling hugely inspired and excited to tell their families what they had learnt. This was also a brilliant way to find out more about occupations and the role of a dentist.”
