Your Children

Dental Tips and Advice for your Children

We encourage 6 monthly dental check for all children from birth. This allows the child to get used to us and our surroundings. We participate in a national scheme called Childsmile which incorporates tooth brushing lessons, dietary advice and application of a fluoride varnish to the teeth of under 6s. For further info click on the Childsmile link.

Diet and Drinks

Look at the Carbohydrates (of which sugars) per 100g. Anything over 5% should be treated with caution, you will be surprised how many foods and drinks this rule of thumb will highlight.

All children will be treated as NHS patients, this includes check ups, cleaning, childsmile, white fillings in "milk" teeth and white fillings on front adult teeth. Fillings on back adult teeth are of the metal amalgam type on the NHS.

White fillings are available on these teeth on a private basis and are charged at half the adult rate. Obviously prevention is better than cure and this is our focus.
