Considering the needs of communities in Loughborough helps us demonstrate our caring philosophy, which is why we support the work of charity organisations by providing volunteer dentistry work and promoting oral dental health care. Our public relations officer Shirali works with local schools and nurseries to promote and educate good oral hygiene.
As leading team of dentists, we believe that an essential part of responsibility is to promote oral dental health, such as preventing the development of gum disease and tooth decay – within our practices – and beyond to the wider community, Many team members have made visits to deprived communities to volunteer their dentistry skills.
Charities we have supported are:
- “Make-A-Wish” we raised £1000 which also included Dr Kaderbhai and Amy Fitta (nurse) doing a skydive on the 9th August 2014.
- Rainbow charity
- Cancer charity
- Bridge2Aid: we raised £40 as part of a smile month from 20th May 2013 to 20th June 2013.
And many more …
Thank you so much for the visits today. The children loved learning about healthy teeth and meeting Milo. They have been talking about brushing their teeth all day.. I highly recommend booking a visit with the Carillon Dental service. These interactive sessions are extremely well planned and delivered to meet the needs of the children. Milo the monkey makes each session interactive and engaging session. All the activities are fun and highly educational, which leaves children with increased knowledge about keeping teeth heathy and clean. It really is a lovely session and can be adapted to meet the needs of each age range.Shobna Maisuria, Oxley Primary School in Shepshed
I would like to thank you for your visit yesterday. Both the children and staff found it to be very informative and fun. The children went home very excited and enjoyed sharing their experience with their parents and carers. We look forward to seeing you again in January and we will be inviting both children and their families to attend. Thank you again.Tracey Tiddlywinks
A huge thank you for coming in yesterday. The children loved it and especially enjoyed meeting Milo. It was a fantastic way to inform children about this important part of their everyday routine. We have already had a parent comment on how well their child brushed their teeth last night for bed when it is usually a part of bedtime that is dreaded and a chore. Thank you once againAlison Holmes at Queniborough Preschool, Queniborough
Thank you so much for yesterday’s dental session. The children enjoyed the presentation and i think took some important points away, which i think is brilliant. We will continue your good work and continue to talk and remind our children about the need to look after their teeth.Many thanks once again, JeanJean Ford Roundhill Academy Preschool in Thurmaston
Your recent visit to the pre-school was very good I thought that you were well prepared to deliver the advice to the children and grown-ups! It was done in such a fun and interactive manner that the children happily took part and paid attention to what you said. We revisited the discussion the following morning with the children who were very excited and animated to tell a member of staff about Milo. They were also able to recall how long and how often they need to clean their teeth and healthy and unhealthy foods. I would definitely like you to visit us again later in the year.Many thanks, Della HollyDella Holly St Peter and St Paul Preschool, in Syston, LE7 1HR
Thank you so much for coming in to visit my class this week. They really enjoyed the discussion with you and learnt a lot of useful and important facts about oral health without even realising! The children were really able to engage with the topic thanks to the creative resources, songs and games you did with them. It certainly was a fun and educational experience and we have continued to sing the songs you taught them about brushing their teeth. Thanks again, Nicole SmithNicole Smith Burton On the Wolds Primary School, Burton On the Wolds.
Thank you so much for coming to see us.The children thoroughly enjoyed it and have still been talking about it today.This morning we recapped on what we had learnt and everyone remembered exactly what you had said. E.g. 2 minutes twice a day. You were fantastic with the children and we are so grateful for you coming to see us. So again thank you.GemmaGemma Woodhouse Day Nursery
The children (and staff) absolutely loved the session and the little ones have been talking about it non-stop since. A lot of the parents said they had gone home talking about how we brush our teeth properly and that it needs to be for 2 minutes and twice a day. 1 of our 3 year olds who has been a reluctant teeth brusher even went home and did it all by herself that night so your message definitely hit home.

I just wanted to email my thanks for your visit on Wednesday 17th June. The children really enjoyed your visit and were particularly taken with the monkey, they told me all about cleaning his teeth after you left and more importantly they told some of their parents about your visit and that they wanted to go to the dentist. I think that this is a really good project and am really pleased that your practice is working hard to improve dental hygiene in Leicestershire.Mel Whitley, Nursery Manager.Mel Whitley,Small World Nursery, Schofield Family Centre, Greenclose Lane, Loughborough, Leicestershire.

We very much enjoyed your visit to our little setting! Our children range in age from 2 years to almost five years and we felt that the session was not too long and had the right mix of information, songs, interactive props etc. to maintain the children’s interest as they are very young. You were all lovely and had a great manner with the children. I would recommend you for this kind of activity! Thanks again.

As our practice is dedicated in promoting happy and healthy smiles within the local community. The team from Carillon made a visit to see children aged 2-5 at the Burton on the wolds playgroup. PR Manager Shirali and Oral Health Educator Holly delivered a fun and interactive session to encourage children on how to look after their teeth better.
Nicky from the playgroup was full praise of team.
