Reception class visit Dr Williams’ Dental Clinic in Lytham
An exciting morning was enjoyed by both the children and staff alike at The Lytham Dental Clinic. When we arrived we were greeted by Dr Williams and all staff who work at the clinic and then divided in to two smaller groups.

Our first activity with Mrs Williams and the dental nurse Laura was to learn about what we need to do to look after our teeth. We learned that as children we have 20 teeth and then as we grow we have 32 teeth. Using some giant teeth and a toothbrush we practised cleaning the teeth in a set order and for 2 whole minutes long. We discussed foods that are good for our teeth and the children were able to give lots of different answers.

Our final activity was to sort a shopping basket of food and drinks in to those which are healthy for our teeth and those which may have a lot of sugar in them. This task was a real challenge because many of the children’s favourite foods such as cake and fizzy drinks do contain lots of sugar. We discovered that there are 5 sugar lumps in a can of coke, as much sugar as a person should be having in the whole day. Time to change some of our eating habits I think!
  

It was then time to swap the groups around and visit Dr Williams in his surgery. He began by talking about the special equipment he uses, why gloves and a mask are worn and why it is so important to visit a dentist regularly. All the children were then very excited to take on the role of Dr Williams and the patient – they put on a glove and mask and tried to count how many upper teeth they could see. We had great fun in the chair being moved up and down.

I would to say a huge thank you to Dr and Mrs Williams for allowing us to visit the Dental Clinic. It was a great morning of learning about our teeth, the role of a dentist and the children were so excited to receive a goody bag at the end.
