Jenny Bristow cooks up a treat at the dentist
Jenny Bristow is well known locally and is never afraid of rolling up her sleeves when it comes to lending support and getting involved with others where she can be of help. Most recently Jenny has joined forces with Laura Jones a local Dentist in Ballymena in its approach to healthy food and the benefits to children.
The idea was simple – Make a visit to the dentist fun and help promote dental health by means of a Funday for the Children
“I think it is fantastic that a well recognised dentist who not only treats clients from as far away as Dublin takes time out for children. Laura Jones’ approach to help prevent problems at such a crucial age by helping them understand the different types of foods and their affect in a fun way is so innovative and easy to understand. If you can attend the next Funday it is certainly worth a visit and will be time well spent.”
On Funday the children are fascinated at how all the animals have different types of teeth and how they grow and can compare it to our own and even get to hold a real sharks skull!! To add to the fun there are games and loads of activities which everyone could join in including our own staff. There is colouring in, quizzes and more.
“The first fun day began with only 24 children in Easter 06. Children along with their parents were invited to enjoy having a hands on approach to learning about teeth and healthy eating. Since then we have had a second Funday and were surprised at the support we received encouraging us to continue with this project. We are even more delighted that we were spotted by Jenny Bristow the TV celebrity who is going to lend her support to this and help us promote healthy eating”
Jenny Bristow will be helping out at the next Funday on Friday 3rd of November at 10am – 1pm at Laura Jones Dental so why not come along and meet her there between 11am and 12pm.
