Tariq Drabu Discusses the New Toothbrush Programe Introduced in 2016
Tariq Drabu said “The new toothbrush programme introduced for nursery and school staff is showing positive results in 2016.”
Tariq Drabu is a leading dentist and specialist oral surgeon who was born and educated in Manchester in the United Kingdom. He is also one of the youngest dentists to ever graduate in the UK before working in some of the busiest dental hospitals in the UK and Saudi Arabia. Today he is the owner of the successful Langley Dental Practice and is also the Clinical Lead Dentist for the Oral Surgery Clinical Assessment and Treatment Services at NHS Heywood Middleton and Rochdale. He also finds time in his busy schedule to tutor and mentor postgraduate dentists in oral surgery at the UCLAN Dental Clinic in Preston.
Tariq Drabu was speaking about an article published on 24 June 2016 on a top dental news website. The full article can be read here.
Tariq Drabu in Manchester said “Nursery and school staff have been given access to the new toothbrush programme. “Brush Time” has been introduced to help children with their toothbrushing. Since it was introduced in February 2016 it has been downloaded by more than five hundred organizations, which is a positive sign.”
TariqDrabu went on to say “This is a very comprehensive toothbrushing programme which is enjoying positive feedback. It focuses on sharing important oral health messages to children at a young age, helping them incorporate good brushing techniques into their oral health routine from an early age. It is an educational tool that will help them start a good routine that they can use well into adulthood.”
TariqDrabu closed in saying “This is a completely free resource and communicates and educates children to provide a useful preventative measure that can be trusted. It is an essential tool when you have one in three twelve year olds suffering with tooth decay and thousands of children being admitted to hospital each year to have their teeth extracted. As you can imagine this is costing the NHS millions each year, for something that is completely preventable with the right education and messages being communicated. Parents and teachers need to be educated so that they can teach children the importance of brushing now and in the future.”
