As has previously been reported in Dental Review 22 dentists and nurses from Clyde Munro Dental Group are volunteering their time to offer children aged 0-12 the opportunity to have free fluoride varnish treatments amid growing concerns regarding the oral health of Scotland’s children.
Scott Fraser & Munro Dental Practice in Dundee is one of several clinics that will be opening for the treatment, with each appointment lasting 10 minutes or more. The recipients do not need to register with Clyde Munro. The Dundee clinic will be taking place between 17:00 – 19:00 on the 31st August. Children will also receive a gift bag containing a toothbrush and toothpaste, as well as an assortment of information packs.
Joyce Shum of Scott Fraser & Munro Dental Practice, said: “This is a great opportunity for parents to receive advice on how best to safeguard the teeth of their children. We not only offer free fluoride varnish treatments, but we also go through brushing instructions and dietary recommendations. We have already seen a great amount of interest for these clinics, and we hope this demand will continue.
“Our fluoride varnish is a strong tooth decay preventer which is highly effective, making sure the children who receive the application are better protected from decay and other oral deficiencies.”
Appointments for the fluoride varnish application clinics are made on a first-come-first-serve basis by contacting the individual practices, the number of available appointments are dependent on the size of the practice. To contact Scott Fraser & Munro and book for next Tuesday, call 01382 612262.
