• Identify their personal motivations for looking after their smile, and use as inspiration to
create artwork.
• Recognise members of the dental practice team and perform in a role play of a check-up visit.
• Demonstrate a systematic tooth brushing technique covering all surfaces and list what tools
they could use to accurately time 2 minutes.
• Estimate the amount of sugar in a variety of popular drinks and compare which are more
damaging/safer for teeth.
