Our policy, particularly for children, is to prevent problems such as tooth decay before they happen. To help achieve this, we are fully invested in the Childsmile programme, with 6 nurses trained as Childsmile nurses.
Where a preventative approach has not been successful, we offer a variety of interventions to restore baby teeth in order that they last until they are they are lost naturally. Every child is different, and parents also differ on what they feel is the best approach for their own children. Our dentists and nurses are aware of this and tailor their approach and treatment planning to take this into account.
As we believe strongly in the importance of prevention, we recommend that you bring your children along as early as possible. This will reassure your child that visiting the dentist is not an unpleasant experience and make any future treatment easier to cope with. Your dental team will give you preventative advice regarding sugary foods and drinks, hidden sugars and healthier snacks and drinks. They will give you and your child advice on toothbrushing and keeping your child’s mouth clean and healthy. It is also important to introduce them to regular check-up visits so that these become routine.
