We are a very friendly and family orientated practice and try to make seeing the dentist fun and interesting for your child. It is important for your child to see a dentist regularly to ensure that they develop good oral hygiene practises and a positive attitude towards visiting a dentist. Although baby teeth do eventually get lost, they play an extremely important role in bite development and maintaining space for the adult teeth. We recommend children to have their first dental visit at about the age of 3 years which will involve a ride in the chair, a look in their mouth and some gifts upon completion. If we are concerned about your childs tooth alignment or other orthodontic issues, we refer our patients to specialist orthodontists at an early age to ensure any necessary early stage treatment can be carried out.
