Take a photo of your child, or children, brushing their teeth and go in the draw to win a family oral health basket.*

We’d also like to hear what your kids say when you ask them ‘Why do we brush our teeth?’

Write down their answers and send in your photos to Heidi.Owers@nmdhb.govt.nz  and you are in the draw.

** Don't forget to include your child’s first and last name, and their date of birth.

We’ll put the photos in some decorative frames and put them up on our clinic waiting room walls (you can let us know if you don’t want them displayed).

When the competition is over you will still be able to find your child’s photo and see how they have changed over time.

* Open to families enrolled at the community oral health clinic in Marlborough. 

Get involved with brushing your kids teeth

Under five-year-olds need to have their teeth brushed by an adult, twice a day, with adult strength fluoride toothpaste.

The Community Oral Health Service in Marlborough encourage parents to be more involved in their children’s tooth brushing.

Is your child enrolled at an oral health clinic?

Call 0800 833 849 or talk to your local school or Early Childhood Centre, GP, Plunket Nurse or Tamariki Ora/Well Child provider about enrolling at a Community Oral Health Clinic - preferably before your child’s first birthday. If you prefer you an complete an enrolment form online.
