Dental needs of our child patients under the NHS
As well as encouraging regular 3 month check ups to monitor and track any changes, we make visits as pleasant as possible, wherever possible outside of school hours or during school holidays.
We also run regular open days for children to ensure that good oral health habits are established at an early age. We explain how to clean teeth correctly and also discuss the importance of a healthy diet and the need to avoid sugary food and drinks. To reinforce this message, we offer free fruit and water at the Practice, available to all our patients.
As the parent or guardian you are responsible for brushing and flossing your child’s teeth up until the age of six or seven.
It is just two minutes twice a day and it is well worth persisting to ensure that your child has a great dental health routine, which is then established for the rest of their life.
Our team of Dentists, Dental therapists and hygienists are all very friendly and approachable and are more than happy to answer any questions you may have about your child’s teeth.
To arrange an initial appointment for your child at the Practice, please call our Reception team on 01457 837361.
