An award-winning project with a big impact

At 543 Dental, we have been actively involved with the award-winning Teeth Team project since its early stages, as we helped develop it into the popular educational programme it is today, serving schoolchildren across Hull.

It takes a community…

Teeth Team is a school-based supervised tooth-brushing programme, incorporating clinical dental assessments, applications of fluoride varnish and the subsequent signposting for accessing primary and secondary dental care. It is a collaborative working partnership between local dental practices, government, schools and parents in an effort to improve the dental health of children across the country.

An oral health education hub

We created an innovative website for parents and children, where kids of all ages can find age-appropriate activities and games to help them learn about their teeth, and adults at all stages of parenthood can find oral health advice to help them teach their kids about the importance of great oral hygiene.

FAQs

What is Teeth Team?

It’s a supervised tooth-brushing programme aimed at primary school-aged children.

How does it work?

Children brush on a daily basis at an arranged, suitable time at school. We also provide dental assessments and fluoride varnish applications at the school every year; sometimes every six months.

Why do you do it?

Prevention! It’s extra help to try and prevent tooth decay and will hopefully lower the number of fillings or extractions needed by children.
