We advise, in line with government advice, that young children are brought to see us as soon as their first teeth come through, and before their first birthday.
We are a child friendly practice and enjoy treating children.
It is important to check children’s teeth regularly.
Zero fillings are an ever more frequent and realistic expectation.
Routinely preventative treatments for children:
- Examination and screening.
- Oral hygiene instruction and dietary advice
- Fissure Sealants.
- Topical fluoride application.
- Orthodontic assessment.
- Sports Gum shields
- Restorative care.
- Emergency and Trauma care.
We are happy to treat the children of our regular patients under the NHS.
We recommend 3-6 monthly check ups according to need.
As a private dental practice we are funded predominately by fees for our services to patients. We maintain a small contract with the NHS for the provision of services to the youngsters of our regular adult patients. We normally extend this arrangement until completion of full time education. Our NHS care is not exclusively limited to the under 18’s. Where there are alternatives treatments choices these will be offered and discussed.
