Happy Smiles Club

A Great Yarmouth based club, Happy Smiles Club, associated with John G Plummer and Associates attended an event to talk all things teeth.

The event, held at Great Yarmouth Library, saw Oral Health Educators, Marijka and Lauren delivering advice, tailored for children from tooth brushing techniques to the impact of diet and sugar on our teeth.

They played games and all the children received a special goodie bag.

Established by John G Plummer and Associates Dental Surgeons in 2016, the clubs aim is to promote a healthy lifestyle by ensuring that all children grow up with the skills and knowledge to keep their teeth healthy. This is by promoting good tooth brushing techniques and highlighting the impact of diet on our teeth.

As well as nurse lead clinics, Happy Smiles Club has visited nurseries, primary schools and residential homes.
