Dudley’s Community Toothbrush Scheme

Dudley’s Community Toothbrush Scheme 

Dudley’s Community Toothbrush Scheme is helping to support families in taking care of their teeth from as soon as a child has their first tooth.

We have provided many organisations across the borough, including foodbanks, charities, warm spaces and religious places of worship, with free toothbrush packs to give to members of the community who are in need.

The packs include a toothbrush, fluoride toothpaste, information postcard about the importance of oral health.

Our Healthy Lunchbox Resource which promotes healthy eating and making tooth friendly food swaps.

  • Tooth decay is the most common oral disease affecting children and young people in England, yet it is largely preventable.
  • Brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste is so important to protect both children and adult’s teeth.
  • In difficult financial times, looking after your teeth may slip down the list of priorities.

Through Dudley’s Community Toothbrush Scheme, many organisations across
the borough have been provided with free toothbrush packs to give to residents. Please see the participating organisations here.
