PUPILS from Peppard Primary School visited a dental surgery.

Wood Lane Dentistry in Sonning Common closed for the “smile day”.

Almost 30 children from years three and four learned about looking after their teeth and were given a demonstration of how to brush properly and not miss spots.

They also played games and had quizzes on food and tooth anatomy and fitted fillings using Play–Doh on plaster teeth.

Vikram Chugani, principle practice dentist, said: “We teach the children about prevention. The day is very useful for making sure we keep the number of children under 15 with plaque problems low. Currently, our rate is about five per cent when nationwide it is closer to 50 per cent.”



Each child was given a goodie bag that included a new toothbrush.
