What is BrightBites?
Our BrightBites programme is an oral health education scheme that can be delivered both in the UK and overseas. Volunteers visit schools to deliver a lively, interactive presentation that covers toothbrushing, teeth names and functions, sugar awareness and the importance of regular dental appointments. BrightBites can also be adapted to be delivered at nurseries, secondary schools and groups with additional needs.
The BrightBites package comes with a range of resources including toothbrushing charts, stickers, recipes and healthy teeth leaflets. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters Denplan we are also able to supply toothbrushes and toothpaste for all the children. BrightBites also includes resources for teachers including classroom activities, lesson plans and experiments that are designed to work alongside the curriculum and enhance our volunteers’ visits. Volunteers receive a Dentaid t-shirt, the presentation and all the resources they need to deliver the programme at their local schools.
