Welcome to Day 15 of Bear’s Advent Calendar! Are you ready to #ShareWithBear?
Bear is very proud of Special Smiles, so for Day 15, he wanted to tell you all about it! We have been working with NHS Education Scotland since 2016, delivering dental health training to oral health professionals all across Scotland.
We use a rights-based play approach, which helps children to understand what is going on, and be a part of decisions that affect them, whilst also enforcing their right to play! We look at different relaxation techniques and deep breathing to share with children and young people and help them feel calmer. One of our favourite ways to do this is using bubbles!
We have been delivering our Special Smiles training online since the pandemic – but that hasn’t stopped the fun! Each attendee receives a pack in the post, prior to the session, which includes lots of resources and helpful information to use in their work with the children and young people that they support!
Bear helped to make the Special Smiles packs this year:”Here I am making up the Special Smiles training packs! Wow! Look at all of these amazing resources! I can’t wait for the training to begin! To find out more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
