Welcome to TDC Children’s Dental Fun Zone
Welcome to our Tindale Dental Centre Children’s Dental Fun Zone!
We love seeing our special patients at TDC and we have a great brushing chart and colouring competition for you (with the winner of each competition receiving a PRIZE!
Proper brushing removes plaque from inner, outer and chewing surfaces of teeth. You should spend at least 3 minutes twice a day brushing.
It’s simple and easy. Try using our tooth brushing chart everyday and see how great your smile looks. Don’t forget to come and show us. Seeing the Dentist is really important too.
We also have a terrific brushing and flossing instruction printout for you to read and follow to help you be the best at brushing and get a great healthy, sparkly smile.
