Pupils at Gedney Church End Primary School are feeling “all white” after a visit from Holbeach Dental Surgery practitioners.

The Reception and Year 1 pupils were delighted to welcome their visitors for the first supervised tooth brushing scheme, as part of the Lincolnshire Smiles Programme.

The programme, which has been organised as a partnership between Lincolnshire County Council, local dental surgeries and primary schools, aims to help children develop good and consistent attitudes to oral and dental hygiene.

Gedney Church End is proud of its National Healthy School Status and were very eager to sign up as a result.

On the day, they welcomed Jayne to school for what promised to be an interesting, informative and important session.

All of the children listened very carefully but the real highlight was the practical side... who could have thought that daily tooth-brushing could have been this much fun?
