Support for oral health from the start – a wee update

Plans are now well in place to significantly increase the level of dental health promotion and to improve access to dental health services for young children in the Wallyford and Whitecraig areas.  There will be an increase in dental health promotion activity, including the opportunity to access a fluoride tooth varnish scheme in a variety of community settings such as Stay & Play groups, Playgroups, Mother & Toddler groups and nurseries in Wallyford and Whitecraig.



All children in these areas attending a group in a community setting will be offered a dental health assessment and the opportunity to take part in the Childsmile programme.  This will be backed up by a significant programme of dental health promotion activities in a similar range of local community settings.
