How Dr Bethany Can Help You

As an early childhood educator, you know all too well what it takes to captivate and hold the attention of young children and preschoolers. 

So someone coming to your childcare centre or preschool to talk about dental hygiene and oral health may be met with a little apprehension on whether the children can remain engaged. 

Let’s face it, brushing your teeth and visiting a dentist is likely never going to be a child’s favourite thing to do and no one, child or adult, likes to floss. But it’s something that can help shape a child’s wellbeing well into the future. So finding a way to make dental care education fun and interactive is where Dr Bethany’s Tooth Tales shines. 

It’s my mission to improve the oral health of Australian children through informative, entertaining preschool incursions. Changing the perception of dental hygiene from a chore to something rewarding. With the overall outcome of improving the health and wellbeing of young children across Australia.

Yes! Dental hygiene can be fun

My preschool incursions encompass a healthy eating and self-care message. With my unique superpowers of being an experienced and award winning children’s entertainer, as well as a qualified dentist, my incursions are an enjoyable and educational way to encourage dental hygiene to be fun, rather than a chore.

The 45 minute incursion is designed to teach children about oral health, hygiene and healthy eating. I capture the attention of the children through games, stories, songs, dances and puppets. All while presenting enlightening lessons they will actually enjoy.

Dr Bethany’s Tooth Tales is an interactive experience where children will join in on nearly every activity. They’ll have a chance to practice their brushing and flossing skills with the puppets, and be given the opportunity to ask questions. By asking questions, it helps to develop their interest and strengthens their recently learned knowledge and skills.

At the end of the presentation each child will get their very own take home pack of goodies, with a brushing chart and lots of great info to share with their parents too. And your centre or preschool gets a poster and song to keep as well.

Outcome 3

Children Have a Strong Sense of Wellbeing.

Children take increasing responsibility for their own health and physical wellbeing

This is evident, for example, when children:

Show an increasing awareness of healthy lifestyles and good nutrition

Show increasing independence and competence in personal hygiene, care and safety for themselves and others

Educators promote this learning, for example, when they:

Engage children in experiences, conversations and routines that promote healthy lifestyles and good nutrition

Actively support children to learn hygiene practices

Promote continuity of children’s personal health and hygiene by sharing ownership of routines and schedules with children, families and the community
