Just like magic
Helping educate children in oral health and reduce their fear of dentists
Arran Dental Care, run by Emma Kendall and her dentist husband Kenneth, held an oral health event on the island over the summer in partnership with Nicki Rowland, author of The Magic Dentist1.
With the support of The Magic Circle, Nicki is touring the UK with her daughter Isabella, who illustrated the book which is designed to educate children in oral health and reduce their fear of dentists.
“It was a great success,” said Emma. “There was healthy food and drink supplied by local businesses, including Arran Diaries and the Arran Cheese Shop.
We have been working to get people engaged again with their oral health
“The children received a free copy of the book along with a goodie bag that included toothpaste and a toothbrush, all sponsored by Arran Accountants.
“And, of course, there was a magician!”
Emma added: “People on the island have struggled because of COVID and its aftermath, unable to be seen or treated.
“Since we moved her in 2021, we have been working to get people engaged again with their oral health.”
