Oral Health is essential for health and wellbeing and early childhood is the time when most lifetime habits are established. It offers the greatest opportunity for prevention of disease that in turn can contribute to better health in adulthood. The Amigoss team wants to contribute by following the Early Childhood Oral Health Guidelines for Child Health Professionals. They aim to improve the health and well-being of children in NSW by integrating oral health into general health interventions provided by Child Health Professionals.
The Amigoss children listened to stories regarding brushing teeth and nutrition, participated in activities of arts and crafts and, of course, learnt to brush their teeth!
We encourage the parents to bring the toothbrushes in individual containers with their child´s name, so we can help them to brush their teeth after lunches.
