Helping children have healthy teeth

Healthy Teeth

Our friendly Healthy Families team is here to offer practical and evidence-based support to help your child to grow up with a healthy smile. 

Healthy teeth workshops

We run regular parent workshops to share the most up-to-date guidance on healthy teeth with parents and carers. 

Would you like to:

  • Understand the causes of tooth decay and how to prevent it?
  • Get support to register with a dentist and find out what to expect
  • Feel more confident about foods and drinks that are good for teeth
  • Get some ideas to help toothbrushing become a fun time for the family

Workshops run at a variety of times and dates, both online and face-to-face. See our events calendar to find out more. 

Healthy Eating and Oral Health drop-in:  Come along to our drop in sessions to chat with one of our HENRY practitioners for support around healthy eating, tips for good toothbrushing, sugar swaps and much more!
