Children’s Dentistry

Your child’s dental well being is very important to us, and to help make their visits as positive as possible we recommend coming to see us when the first teeth arrive, this helps ensure that they get used to the surroundings and we can also advise on healthy diets and good tooth cleansing techniques.

kidsDuring your child’s Dental health check we carefully assess their whole mouth, paying particular attention to the growing teeth ensuring that all the teeth and surrounding structures are developing normally. We also assess and discuss whether Orthodontic treatment (braces) will be advisable.
