Bright Bites

Bright Bites is an educational resource with lesson plans and experiments aimed at teaching children about their teeth. Volunteers visit schools to deliver a presentation that covers toothbrushing, sugar awareness and the importance of regular dental check ups. 

All the children receive a leaflet, toothbrushing chart, toothbrush and toothpaste. This is complemented by resources and lesson plans for teachers which include experiments and classroom activities 
Dentaid was delighted to receive a £9100 grant from the People’s Postcode Lottery to extend the project to schools in Leeds.  

“I would like to say a huge thank you to Dentaid from us all at Southfield Dental Practice. Leigh, my dental nurse and I visited 3 schools: The Epiphany School, Muscliff, Bransgore CE Primary School and Ringwood Junior School. They were all so pleased to hear the BrightBites PowerPoint presentation and the children loved their dental goodies we couldn’t have done it without your support!
All the teachers were incredibly grateful to have our help teaching the year 3/4 children all about teeth as part of their KS2 curriculum. The feedback from parents has also been very positive with mums saying that their children are taking much more care brushing their teeth.”  Caroline Gollings, dentist.
The Bright Bites project was also successfully delivered at schools in Buckinghamshire, Hampshire and West Yourkshire.  Download Bright Bites
