Dental care for Brent school children

1 July 2014

We have launched a new schools-based dental outreach programme to help tackle tooth decay amongst local children.
Nearly half of all Brent children suffer with tooth decay and it is the commonest cause of non-urgent admission to hospital for children in the borough.
The programme aims to work with local dentists and primary schools to arrange free dental assessments and fluoride varnish application to children in nursery and up to Year 2. The programme aims to provide free assessments to over 1000 children.
We will be liaising with head teachers over the summer months to identify which schools want to take part in this exciting pilot.
