Our campaign is dedicated to making a difference in Cornish communities. Working together with Cornwall Council, local businesses and individuals we go into schools providing fun and educational oral health education, tooth brushing clubs and fluoride varnishing. See how your school could benefit.
We are working with other dental professionals who share our ‘prevention is better than cure’ outlook and, like us, care deeply about the oral health of their local community and the younger generation. In some cases, their dental nurses have undertaken training with us and joined our bank of volunteers to deliver the campaign in local schools.
Our campaign provides a range of mutually beneficial opportunities for supporters to make a real difference in their local community. Help us reach more schools and more children by becoming a supporter.
