Dental Health Day – 15/10/13

Yesterday a dentist and a dental health nurse fromΒ the Dentist of Plenty ValleyΒ came to Upper Plenty PS to talk the students about keeping our teeth healthy.

We learnt…
– how many teeth we each had when we visited Dr Justine, the dentist (most of us have 24!)
– after you have orange juice you should wait at least 30 minutes before brushing your teeth. This is because the acid contained in orange juice weakens the enamel and starts plaque build up.
– if you drink soft drink you should drink it through a straw, because the acid effects your gum and teeth.
– energy drinks are bad for your health, your heart and your teeth.
– drink water containing flouride because this protects your teeth.
– you should brush your teeth twice a day because it reduces tooth decay.
– how to brush our teeth properly.
– calcium is good for your teeth.

Thank you to Dr Justine and Kerrie for visiting us and teaching us about oral health!

Which fact is most interesting to you and why?
Do you know how many teeth you have?

  1. Hello World,

    Yesterday we enjoyed seeing the dentist and getting our teeth checked. We liked knowing how many teeth we have.

    George: The most interesting fact for me was learning that calcium is good for your teeth. Because it helps your teeth get stronger and healthier. I have 24 teeth.

    Brian: I agree with George and I have 24 teeth as well!!!

    How long do you brush your teeth for?

  2. Hi it is Seth here.

    The dental health day was all about how to look after your teeth well. It also was about what food and drinks that are good and bad for your teeth. My question is what was your favourite part of dental health day?

    Bye for now

  4. Hi

    We enjoyed Dental Health Day because we learnt lots of new facts.

    Kayla: The most interesting fact I learnt was you should brush night and day. I have 19 teeth.

    Olivia S: The most interesting fact I learnt was that you should brush down your teeth not around in circles (for the top teeth). I have 23 teeth.

    Have you frightened by a dentist before? It wasn’t scary yesterday!

  5. Hello 4/5 P,
    We all agree that the following how many teeth we each had when we visited Dr Justine, the dentist (most of us have 24!)
    because we thought we had less than 24.

    We really liked getting our teeth checked by Dr Justine. We had 24!
