Children's Dentist

We love all the little people and they love our stickers and balloons!

Family Friendly Dentistry

We have a huge amount of experience in providing dental care for children. It’s a great feeling seeing your patients from when they started primary school to graduating from university!  Our approach is to introduce good habits into children about oral health right from the start. We achieve this through making the experience as positive as possible from their very first visit. This helps us build trust, confidence and a positive relationship with the children.

Treatments for Children:

We have a wide range of treatments available to children, including:

  • Meet and Greet (no examination, just say hello and see what we are about, we have this for our adult patients too!)
  • Examinations (free for any children up to age 5 if one at least one parent attends twice yearly)
  • Education about dietary habits, nutrition and fluoride advice
  • Fluoride treatments to prevent future tooth decay
  • Fillings where necessary
  • Fissure sealants
  • Sport guards

When to come?

The perfect time is when their first tooth starts to emerge. This helps them to get used to the setting, the sights, the smells, and the sounds that might be involved with dental treatment. The sooner they get used to this, the less chance there is of them developing a phobia as they get older.

We are flexible with appointments to accommodate school term times, and we are also able to see both you and your child at the same time if this would make things easier for you.

What if my child is scared of the dentist?

As parents ourselves and being a family-based practice, we can fully understand if your child is scared and will always do everything that we can to put them at ease. This can include talking them through everything and using distraction techniques.

Whether you are bringing your child to the dentist for the first time, or whether it is their first time with us due to relocation, they are more than welcome. Just give us a call and we will look forward to seeing you.
