FREE Dental Checks for Children
Little Chompers is an education and screening program teaching children about healthy food choices and the importance of keeping their teeth healthy. Little Chompers is publicly funded and supported by Dental Health Services Victoria that runs throughout the year. Our friendly experienced dental ad oral health therapists visit local kindergartens and early childhood centres to conduct FREE dental checks for children.
During the visit children will learn educational messages about oral health and healthy eating habits including:
- What to expect from a visit to the dentist
- What is tooth decay
- The correct technique for brushing teeth
- The importance of regular dental check ups
- Making healthy food and drink choices.
All dental checks are voluntary and all participating children require parent/guardian consent. All participating children will receive some take home information for parents and a gift pack to reinforce the messages communicated with their children during our visit.
If you are interested in having one of our dental professionals visit your service, please contact us on 9430 3100 or email email@example.com.
