Child Smile

We understand that many children are very apprehensive when visiting the practice as everything is new, the sights, the smells and the sounds. Each and every member of our staff do their best to ensure the child has the best possible experience by taking our time to show them the instruments we use, the use of study aids such as soft toys and more importantly taking our time to get the child used to the new surroundings.

We would never push a child into anything which they do not wish to comply with, they may just not be feeling up to it that day and there is always the next visit to try again.

During the appointment the Dentist/Child Smile Nurse will :

  • Give information on how teeth grow and develop.
  • Give information and advice on Teething.
  • Provide the child with a toothbrushing pack which contains a toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste.
  • Demonstrate toothbrushing techniques with use of study aids as shown above.
  • Provide information and advice on diet, nutritional needs, breastfeeding, weaning and sugars.
  • For children aged 2years+ fluoride varnish will be applied 2-4 times yearly, this is a banana-smelling varnish with a high concentration of fluoride which is placed on the teeth to help strengthen them and prevent tooth decay.
