Public health officials have launched a new campaign which aims to keep children’s teeth healthy.

The Keep Suffolk Smiling project launched yesterday.

As part of the initiative, parents will be given promotional packs containing a toothbrush, toothpaste and leaflet at their child’s 12-month check-up.

The aim is to promote “life-long dental health” from an early age.

Alan Murray, county council cabinet member for health and adult care, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to encourage healthy teeth and gums from an early age, which in turn will stand children in good stead throughout their lives.”
