One of the many things we pride ourselves on is being a child-friendly practice. We understand the importance of developing a good oral health routine at an early age.
A child should see a dentist regularly so that we can monitor the development of their teeth and jaw. That way, any problems can be detected and treated before complications or other problems ensue.
Not only can we help familiarise your child with the practice and our team, but we can also help you teach your children how to brush and floss properly.
How soon should I bring my child in?
Once your child’s first tooth erupts, it is a good idea to book an appointment with a dentist for their first visit. After that, we recommend regular visits throughout childhood, normally twice a year.
Seeing a dentist regularly can reduce the likelihood a child will develop dental anxiety and become a nervous patient later in life.
How can I help my child keep their teeth clean?
Developing good habits early on will help your child maintain good oral health practises for a lifetime.
As soon as they can hold a tooth brush, show them how to brush their teeth properly. Encourage them to play an active role in taking care of their teeth by allowing them to choose their toothbrush and toothpaste. Sing songs, count their teeth or let them brush your teeth to make it a fun experience. You will still have to help them clean their teeth until they are about age 7.
Ensure their diet is low in sugar and minimise their consumption of foods that can stain their teeth.
Excellent service, we were seen within 5 minutes of arrival, so glad we came back to you as following a recent move we decided to try a nearer vets who were part of a chain but they sadly offered a very poor & expensive service!Thanks again.
I've been using Appleton Park Dental for nearly 30 years and it's always been great. I was apprehensive when the changes happened a couple of years back but I'm so pleased that I stayed with them as all the staff are wonderful.
My recent experience has bee ongoing check-ups and dental hygiene + some minor treatments from that and also an implant and crown to replace a tooth lost some years ago.Everyone at Appleton Park Dental has been pleasant and cheerful, the check-ups/cleaning & treatments have been thorough. The options to fix the missing tooth were well explained and executed and I'm delighted with the outcome so far. The only reason for the lost star in my rating is the wait times are long. Firstly to get the replacement process underway and secondly most appointments seem to commence at least 30 minutes after the appointment time.Ultimately its probably been worth the waits, but there is room for improvement in that area.
What a great practice- My Daughter has had terrible trouble with her front teeth resulting in root canal treatment.Dr THANAA ABDULLAH was absolutely fantastic, thank you so much.Today I visited the dentist myself for a filling, I am a very nervous patient and Hugh Garvey and Laura made me feel at ease. I would highly recommend this practice.
I wont lie, I hate the Dentist, however the 2 ladies that looked after me yesterday couldnt have been more lovely and patient. it was not an easy job either, which took a good 45 minutes, but they were so lovely and I would highly recommend :)
It was my first time at Appleton Park Dental today. I have left feeling so happy. Everyone is so friendly & helpful. Straight away I was made to feel at ease. What a wonderful team. Thank you so much.Would highly recommend.
