Virtual Oral Health Workshop

The children’s centres are hosting a Virtual Oral Health Workshop for parents with children aged 0-5 years led by a Dental Nurse. The workshop will cover a number of areas to promote good oral health including tooth brushing, preventing tooth decay and infection, diet and dental visits.   

Havering link in with the Oral Health Practitioner for KCFHT- Kent Community Health Foundation Trust who provide evidence based oral health promotion services for local authorities including Havering. They have a website where they have put together some oral health resources for professionals and for parents and carers.

To promote good oral health, the Chief Dental Officer recommends the videos on this page which share a two minute guide to maintaining healthy teeth for children in the following age ranges.   

We have tooth brushing packs for the 0-2 and 3+ plus age ranges available. Although we are having limited face to face contacts with families currently, where you do identify that these may be helpful, you can collect a pack through a prior arrangement from St Kilda Children’s Centre. All the packs will be in a sealed bag to avoid any cross contamination. If you would like to collect a pack, please can you e-mail   

The Change4Life website also includes a Top Tips for Teeth toolkit which aims to support engagement with parents about dental health. Please see attached a guide with handy tips and you can find out more on the Change4 Life website here- NHS Change for Life

If you are working with families who may be interested in booking onto the above Oral Health Workshop, please e-mail to reserve a place.
