We create a safe calm place for your child to experience the dentist clinic hopefully reducing any future fears. Tooth decay can happen at any age and with our oral health guidance and regular check-ups, we can ensure your child's teeth stay healthy from their baby teeth all the way to their adult teeth at 18 years old.

Looking After your children

When we first see a child at the Practice for an Examination we assess their immediate, short and long-term needs.

If at this point they require any treatment, we have a dedicated team, Sarah-Jane & Lauren who are our Dental Therapists.  A Dental Therapist is a member of the Dental team who provides routine dentistry for children and young adults under the instruction of a Dentist.

Sarah-Jane & Lauren will work closely with you and your child by providing advice and guidance where necessary. This advice may consist of tooth brushing if required along with diet and health advice.  Our friendly, supportive and caring nursing team will assist our therapist when your child needs a hand to hold!

Under our NHS Contract, we also offer routine examinations, fillings and extractions along with free preventive advice, to all our children. We also provide fissure sealants, a plastic coating which is painted onto the fissures (grooves) of the back teeth to form a protective layer which can stop bacteria from causing decay.
