Hello, we are the Oral Health Improvement Team for Bedford and Central Bedfordshire.

We deliver the My Smile award and the Let’s Brush programme in our area. They both support targeted early years settings with daily supervised toothbrushing. My Smile extends to ensure that the settings are tooth friendly in their everyday practice.

We provide free training to settings taking part in both our My Smile award and the Let’s Brush programme.

We also offer free general oral health training to:

  • Early Years practitioners
  • Teachers, Governors and staff in primary special schools
  • Health professionals working with children

Our training:

Promoting national campaign messages around oral health is key to our work, too. See how and when we do this here.
