On Monday the 11th of April the team at Semper Dental came to visit. They checked the children’s teeth looking for cavities, teeth that needed sealing and also cleaning and polishing. The children were able to lay down nicely in the chair and open their mouths for the dentist. Some children looked on first watching their friends get checked.
The dentist was able to interact with the children and discuss how many teeth they had, if they brush their teeth twice a day, what colour their toothbrush is and how long they brush their teeth for.
Kool Kidz Tarneit would like to thank the team at Semper Dental for coming out and would like to thank our children for being great.

The children were able to discover and reflect their own identity. They discussed their routine that they have in the morning and at night time leading up to, and after they have brushed their teeth.

The children were able to use their senses to describe, demonstrate and feel what the dentist was doing. They discussed what the tools looked like and how the dentist used them. Some children even spoke about how they got to squirt the water.
