Supervised Toothbrushing

With Government initiatives to increase supervised toothbrushing for 3-5 year olds in early years settings, this page has everything you need to know to start a scheme in your setting.

Have you ever wondered about starting supervised toothbrushing but can’t imagine how it works in practice? See how one school in North Somerset carries out their supervised toothbrushing. The school have commented on how surprisingly easy it has been to implement, how much fun the children have doing it, and how, if they forget, the children remind them because it became a part of their routine so quickly.

The Big Brush Club is the NHS England commissioned provider of supervised toothbrushing in the South West. Here is a video from them showing how supervised toothbrushing works with their programme.
