The children in the Butterfly Room were visited by dentist Mayuri Mirji, whose child attends the Nursery. She brought with her lots of exciting dentistry activities for the children to try out.
They used working toy drills on model teeth to remove ‘cavities’ and then carefully insert ‘fillings’, just like a real dentist. They also found out about good brushing technique and tried it out on models of teeth and gums, and learned more about what dentists are checking for when they look into a person’s mouth.
Mayuri also brought some of her real equipment so that the children could familiarise themselves with dentists’ tools such as drills and mirrors, and compare them with the model versions they were able to use.
