Looking after your child’s teeth, hearing and eyes
Looking after your child’s…
Teeth – Take your child to the dentist when their first milk teeth appear, this helps them become familiar with the environment and get to know the dentist. Just opening up their mouth for the dentist to take a look at is useful practice for the future.
Hearing – If you have any concerns about your child’s hearing please contact your Health Visitor or School Nurse team who will arrange a hearing test for you.
Eyes – Some signs that your child may need their eyes testing include, sitting too close to the TV, rubbing their eyes a lot, holding objects very close to their face, blinking a lot and one eye turning either in or out. For more information, visit the NHS Choices website.
