Early Years and Oral Health

Oral Health

Early Years settings are now required to promote the 'good oral health of children' which has been introduced following research by Public Health England that suggest that 1 in 5 children aged 5, have experienced tooth decay. The aim of the new requirement is to reduce tooth decay in children and associated hospital admissions, since it is the most common reason for children aged between 6 and 10 to be admitted to hospital to have teeth removed.
