Dental Check by 1: Book your child in for their first dental appointment now 

29 September 2020

It is very important to take your baby for their first appointment at the dentist by the age of one. It gets them off to a healthy start and accustomed to dental practice visits from an early age. This prevents them from being nervous of coming as they grow.

A dental appointment by the age of one is an opportunity for parents to get valuable advice from the dental team about how to maintain good oral health for their child.

It is crucial to have baby teeth checked because they hold the space for the permanent teeth to move into. As a parent or carer, your role is to assist in keeping their mouth healthy and free from harmful bacteria which leads to dental decay. The first visit is an opportunity to get advice from the dental team on caring for these teeth.

It is important to get advice on topics such as:

  • Brushing baby’s teeth
  • A healthy diet
  • Regular dental checks

At this age, understanding how to care for your baby’s teeth moving forwards is critical to their future dental health.

You will find a great summary of how to care for your child’s teeth in the campaign booklet. Follow the link below to view it:’s%20teeth%20Nov%202016.pdf

First time here, absolutely impressed with the professional manor they operate their surgery. I was recommended by my local Doctors and it’s the best advice I have taken up. I look forward to my next visit and feel assured they will give me the best possible treatment available. If this was a hotel it would be 6 star plus.

Vanessa and Emily listened to my concerns and re-assured me throughout my appointment. They were really informative, friendly and made me feel at ease throughout.

I was a very nervous patient, but with the help from such lovely staff, I enjoy coming to the dentist now.
