Best Start with Henry Oral Heath Services
As an Oral health practitioner for Best start with HENRY my role is to improve awareness around oral health and to ultimately reduce the amount of decay in children under five within the borough.
We are currently providing a half day oral health training course for health visitors, reception teachers, nursery staff, foster carers and early years staff.
This FREE oral health training package aims to deliver the following outcomes for practitioners;
To understand why primary teeth are so important and be able to confidently deliver advice and key messages around oral hygiene routines.
To understand the different factors and causes of tooth decay and how to prevent tooth decay in children. The course is fun, interactive and is approved by the Royal Society of Public Health
We have also compiled a list of all the dental surgeries within Waltham Forest that are taking on new patients and that welcome young children, this is available via the Children and Family Centre’s or by contacting me or the HENRY offices directly. Parents have told me that they find this list really useful as they often find themselves calling several surgeries to try and register their children which can be off-putting.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or requests either by phone or email Gemma.Akinade@henry.org.uk or call 07720 090 922 / 0208 496 5223. Visit www.henry.org.uk for more information.
