THIS IS THE WAY WE BRUSH OUR TEETH
On Wednesday 23rd November, Dr Ramphoma, Keshrie and Sli – 2 Oral Hygienists – from King Dinuzulu Hospital came to visit Makabongwe.
Their purpose and mission was to give the children some basic education on how to look after their teeth as well as conduct screening.
We all learnt something new….. I learnt that you only need apply toothpaste the size of a pea onto your brush!
Sadly many children have poor teeth and need further assistance.
All parents will be encouraged to take their children to a dentist during the December holidays.
We have a song to encourage cleaning our teeth twice a day, early in the morning and just before you go to bed.
“This is the way we brush out teeth, brush our teeth, brush our teeth
This is the way we brush our teeth at Makabongwe Pre-School”
Sung to the tune of “Here we go round the Mulberry bush” doing small round circle actions pretending to brush your teeth.
Here’s to healthy teeth
Thank you Dr Ramphoma, Keshrie and Sli – we really appreciate your visit and what you taught us.
