It is important to encourage good oral health routines from a young age to give them the best chance to have a smile that lasts a lifetime.
We engage young people in their oral health by educating them about the ‘why’ as well as the ‘how’. We even provide specific dental care for children. We encourage positive visits to allow children to get used to the setting and start forming a relationship of trust with your Dentist. Phobias are more likely to develop when your first visit coincides with a painful dental problem.
We recommend all children start visiting the dentist early and support the British Society of Paediatric Dentistry’s campaign ‘Dental Check by One’. This helps us to deliver guidance not only on tooth brushing but also tips on diet to reduce the risks of tooth decay.
