Early Years

Supervised daily tooth brushing programme in EYFS

The Brush Bus tooth brushing scheme has been launched in pre-school and nursery childcare settings in order to increase exposure to fluoride among the under five-year-old children in Bury. The Bury Oral Health Promotion Team are facilitating daily tooth brushing with family fluoride toothpaste at targeted establishments via staff training, support, advice to parents and the provision of equipment.
