Julia Wilkinson, Senior Health Promotion Specialist (aka The Head Tooth Fairy)

Becky Soong-Towell, Health Promotion Specialist

The team can often be found out and about in the community sharing key oral health messages. Much of their time is spent developing oral health resources and training staff to spread the messages.

What do we do?

The team works to improve the oral health of our local community in Nottinghamshire and Bassetlaw.

Our aims are to:

  • Reduce the level of dental caries (decay) experience of all children.
  • Ensure all children and adults receive appropriate dental care.
  • Increase knowledge about oral health by ensuring that accurate and consistent messages are promoted.

The key oral health messages:

  • Eat a healthy balanced diet. Try to limit sugary food/drink to mealtimes only.
  • Brush your teeth twice a day, for 2 minutes, using fluoride toothpaste.
    Spit out, don’t rinse!
  • Visit a dentist regularly for a check up!
