On Friday 26th April 2019, the Institute of Dentistry welcomed some very special visitors through its doors.
Members of Little Acorns Nursery’s ‘Blue Group’ came to visit us to find out how they can look after their teeth and what they should eat and drink to make sure their teeth stay healthy. All these questions were answered enthusiastically by Dr Malcolm Stewart with the help of some of our dental students.
First stop was our colourful Paediatric clinic where a set of giant teeth provided helpful guidance on brushing technique. The children also made themselves comfortable in the dental chair and enjoyed pressing the buttons and looking at the different tools. There was even time to dress up in clinical scrubs tops!
Then up the stairs to our teaching room where a healthy snack of fresh fruit and water was waiting for our visitors before playing the ‘good food’ ‘bad food’ game. All too soon it was time to say goodbye, but the Blue Group had had a great time - as had all the staff and students.
