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.

The government announced that from Monday 8th of June, restrictions on Dental Practices seeing patients for face-to-face appointments will be lifted in England.
We are incredibly pleased to be able to see our patients again, and we are working very hard to ensure that the Practice is a safe and well-equipped environment for us to deliver the dental care needed.
However, we would like to make it clear that we are following a phased return during the following weeks;
This means we do not have an open-door policy, and we are not yet at the point at which routine appointments can be made.
As you can imagine, with every Dental Practice in the country gearing up to return, there is an immense strain on our PPE supply chain, and so we can only provide emergency dental care with a skeleton staff to begin with, whist we implement our new protocols and source the required PPE.
We will keep you updated on our progress and readiness to book Check-ups, Hygienist appointments and other appointments over the coming weeks.
Until then, we would kindly request that only those with a genuine dental emergency or pain ring the practice and leave a message briefly describing the problem.
A dentist will then assess and advice on the best course of action over a telephone call first.
If it is agreed that you need to attend the Practice, our Receptionists will explain in detail what to expect on arrival, and all our new protocols.
These emergency patients along with those who have been cancelled midway through treatment, are the ones who will be contacted as a priority. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
I hope you have been keeping well and I look forward to seeing you soon.
