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 member of the team, Sarah-Jane who is our Dental Therapist.  A Dental Therapist is a member of the Dental team who provide routine dentistry for children and young adults under the instruction of a Dentist.

Sarah-Jane 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 causing decay.
