Carla’s Childsmile Course

Dental Nurse Carla attended Aberdeen Dental Education Centre last week for a Childsmile development course called “Special Smiles”. At this course Carla has developed her understanding of educating children regarding oral health. The course entailed of discussing the way children think and learn. By completing this course Carla will be able to improve on her skills as a Childsmile nurse when delivering oral health sessions to children.

At the practice we have 4 Childsmile nurses; Chloe, Carla, Kelly and Kirsty. Being a Childsmile nurse means that the nurses can apply duraphat fluoride varnish to children’s teeth and deliver oral health sessions to children. At the Deveron Dental Centre when your child attends for an examination they will also attend a Childsmile appointment with one of the nurses, to discuss toothbrushing and diet.
