Tooth Fairy Diaries Amber ahmed, 4th YEAR DENTAL STUDENT

As part of BioDiscovery for British Science Week, I have created videos on the the best tips and tricks to ensure that you keep your teeth for a lifetime!

If you want that fabulous hollywood smile then follow my tips and tricks below.


  • In 2019, Public Health England stated 1 in 4 (23%) of 5-year olds have previously had tooth decay.
  • An average of 3 days of school were missed due to dental problems.
  • 38% of children had sleepless nights because of the pain.
  • Many days of work were potentially lost as 41% of parents/carers were employed.
These statistics reveal, that change is needed. This change starts with ourselves.
Let's scrub up on our knowledge and make sure that we're making our tooth fairies proud of our teeth!

Toothbrushing: looking after your sparkly white pearls!

You can miss up to 35% of the tooth's surface if you miss flossing your teeth! Gum disease, tooth decay and tooth loss could be the result! Check out the video below to find out more..

Plaque is wack, floss is boss!


  • Plaque is a sticky, slimy substance made up mostly of the germs that cause tooth decay.
  • That's why it's important to brush your teeth at least twice every day and floss daily.
  • If too much plaque builds up on and between your teeth, you'll get cavities or – even worse – gum disease!

Save a tooth!
