Fluoride varnish in schools

Fluoride, when applied to the teeth by a dentist, helps to strengthen children’s teeth.

Fluoride varnish is offered to all children in Newham who are in nursery, reception and year 1. It is also offered to all children who attend one of Newham’s special schools.

To sign up for the fluoride-varnishing programme, you will need to complete the consent form that is provided to you by your school.
