PARENTS are being encouraged to exchange their child’s bottle or dummies for a toothbrush and toothpaste in a scheme by 10:32@Tree Tops children’s centre in Kidderminster.

The centre, which is run by a consortium of partners, including the national children’s charity Barnardo’s, on behalf of Worcestershire County Council, is holding the exchange event today (July 2) between 9.30am and 3.30pm.

Mobile dentists will be on hand to give your child’s teeth a friendly check up and information about dental health and dentists in your area will be available.

There will also be a colouring competition with a prize for the best decorated toothbrush.
