On Wednesday the 11th of February 2015 Ruth Stokes, a dentist, visited 2nd Class.  She told us about the three surfaces of our teeth which are the biting surface, the cheek surface and the tongue surface.  She also told us what is good to eat and what is bad to eat.  She gave everyone in the class a free toothbrush.  I got a green toothbrush.  Ruth told us how to brush our teeth properly.  When I grow up I would like to be a dentist.



Yesterday Dr Ruth Stokes came to visit our class.  She is a dentist.  She told us all about looking after our teeth.  The dentist said we should brush our teeth twice a day.  She told us to avoid foods with lots of sugar in them and sweets.  She also told us to avoid fizzy drinks.  She told us to eat healthy snacks like popcorn and fruit.  If we drink fruit juice it should be freshly squeezed.  It was a very interesting talk.  We got to ask lots of questions.  It was lots of fun.  We now know how to look after our teeth.
