Tackling the effects of sugar worldwide

The founder and Principal Dentist of the Stephen Dental Practice in London, Neil Stephen, recently flew out to St Lucia to help educate some of the lsland’s school communities on how to avoid dental decay.

We took two large tooth models to help demonstrate good oral hygiene techniques to the children. The second model, donated by The Dental Directory, was very useful as Mrs Stephen and I were able to observe half of the class each with their cleaning.

We also took balloons and timers donated by The Dental Directory, which the children absolutely loved (maybe more than the lessons!). You could feel the anticipation as we turned our attention to the brushing, with a brush, a balloon, toothpaste and stickers provided as rewards for taking part.

We are conscious of how many charities there are, all of them needy, and are so grateful that The Dental Directory decided to assist us in helping over 300 children in St Lucia to understand a bit more about preventing dental decay.
