Test your knowledge - take the Drayton Dental quiz!

Teeth are precious and the best teeth you will ever have are your own, which is why our Drayton dental practice in School Road promotes a preventive approach through regular examinations and hygiene treatments.

How much do you know about caring for your mouth, teeth and gums? Are you teaching your children the most effective way to care for their own teeth and gums? Most of us learnt our dental care routines from our parents who may not have provided the best example – who taught them?

Our Norwich dentists Debbie Paramani and Vasiliki Stamatoukou have put together a short quiz that we hope achieves several goals: it helps to improve your oral care routine at home, and it assists you to teach your children the best dental care techniques so they grow up to enjoy healthy teeth for life.
