Late last month, Bamboo held a special event with the aim of spreading awareness of great oral hygiene to local children. It has become common knowledge that statistically, the number of children with dental issues has an increasing trend year on year. Due to this, we feel that it's the duty of dental practices everywhere to help educate our youngest generations about how they can best look after their oral health.
Super Dentist's Tackle Dental Health Concerns in Cardiff!
On this day, Bamboo's dentists woke up with a sparkle in their eyes for they were to become the super heroes that could inspire our youngest generations. What a transformation it was, Dr Dan and Dr Oli had become Mr Incredible and Batman. The only difference was that instead of batmerangs and super strength, they were armed with dental mirrors and excavators! This inspiring theme was carefully selected to bring excitement to the children. We wanted to create a new perception of the dental surgery for the local children who were due to visit. A place where they would feel compelled to learn. We felt that super hero dentists would be certain to light that spark. As the day progressed each of the children was given a free check-up to see how they're current dental hygiene shaped up. At the same time we were able to give the kids advice and information as well as answering any questions they had about all things teeth. The familiar faces delivering the check ups made the kids much more relaxed and happy to go ahead with their check ups. Some were even happy to pose for a photo in the dental chair! In the meantime, other children were entertained by our friendly dental nurses with face painting, dental goody bags and a fun environment for all. This was all carefully designed to make the dental practice a fun environment for the kids to be in. After all, the dental practice should be a positive place for a person to visit.
An Incredible Success for All Involved
The whole day proved very popular amongst children and parents alike - many citing that they couldn't believe how relaxed their little ones were to be at the dentist. The fun atmosphere and inspiring theme is something that we'll certainly take forwards in future events aimed at helping children expand their knowledge on dental health.
