Childsmile Nursery or School

Children attending a Childsmile Nursery or School participating in the fluoride varnish programme will be offered fluoride varnish an additional two times during the year by the Childsmile dental teams. These additional applications are safe and will give added protection to children’s teeth. Parents are contacted by Childsmile twice a year to make sure they have up-to-date information about children’s medical details.

Within Childsmile, participating nurseries fluoride varnish is applied by a team of two Extended Duty Dental Nurses (EDDNs) who are trained in fluoride varnish application and oral health promotion. EDDNs are supported by a Dental Health Support Worker (DHSW) who is attached to particular nurseries and schools and supports families to help ensure children grow up with healthy teeth.
