Dental Screening at Fawkner Primary

In term 3, a pilot program was delivered at Fawkner Primary School, delivering free dental check-ups for children in Foundation.

The dental team from Merri Health worked with the Youth Health Promotion team to deliver a talk with students about healthy foods, healthy drinks and the importance of brushing your teeth and visiting the dentist, as well as having a dental check.

All Foundation students who participated, learnt more about dental health and enjoyed receiving a sticker and toothbrush to take home.
All families received a letter after the visit with recommendations for their child.

Receiving dental care, treatment and information keeps children’s teeth strong and healthy for life.
