Adult supervision

Salaseini Moceiwai
Saturday, May 17, 2014

THE Ministry of Health is strongly promoting the supervision of young children while brushing their teeth, says acting divisional dental officer northern Dr Nadeem Sattar.

Speaking at the National Oral Health Week celebrations at the Savusavu foreshore yesterday, Dr Sattar told about 200 people that it was very important for parents, adult family members and caregivers to teach and supervise children well on how to brush their teeth.

"Children in primary schools have supervised toothbrushing drills after lunch every day but it's still the responsibility of parents and guardians to check that toothbrushing is also done at home in the morning and evening before bed," he said.
