ChildSmile Update

Latest update from ChildSmile

“The Childsmile Executive, at its recent meeting, discussed an agenda item concerning the Childsmile Toothbrushing Programme and infection control.

Currently NHS Forth Valley advise that we cease toothbrushing where there are outbreaks of enteric (water and food bourne) illness.

Following the recent meeting we can now inform you that with regard to toothbrushing and infection control there is no evidence for discarding toothbrushes.

Under no circumstances staff halt toothbrushing for any cases of childhood illness including sickness and diarrhoea”
