Cardigan Dentists Urge Parents to Promote Healthy Eating at Home
A Cardigan dental team is encouraging parents to promote healthy eating at home in a bid to reduce rates of tooth decay and educate children about the importance of eating a healthy diet.
The team from mydentist is working with community organisations and parents to teach children about which foods are good and bad for you to enable them to make healthy food choices. Diet is a major contributing factor to high rates of dental decay among children, with statistics showing that a large proportion of children consume more than the recommended daily intake of sugar.
Practice manager at mydentist Cardigan, Heather Skitt, said that many children do not see a dentist on a regular basis and this teamed with a high sugar intake spells bad news for dental health. mydentist is committed to promoting preventative oral health measures and the team is eager to support parents and encourage regular dental checks and healthy eating. Dentists and dental hygienists are happy to answer questions about diet and nutrition and the practice is also keen to promote free preventative treatments, including fluoride varnish and fissure sealant treatment.Join this Discussion
