Today dental nurse Steph Booth came to visit KS1 to talk about how they keep us safe from germs at the dentist. We found out that they have to sterilise equipment in machines that heat up to over 200 degrees to kill the germs. We thought about how Florence Nightingale started the mission of making hospitals hygienic and clean all those years ago and it can still be seen today, her influence is still evident, her hard work and determination paid off! Nurse Booth talked to us about the importance of brushing our teeth and visiting the dentist. She brought in some of the equipment used in her surgery for us to look at use. We loved our special visitor and can't wait to brush our teeth tonight with all of our new skills!
