We carry out free check ups on children under the age of 5 years whose parents come to the practice. We will recommend either 6 monthly or annual examinations depending on their age and risk of decay. From the age of six upwards we continually assess a child’s need for orthodontic treatment and will make a referral to a local orthodontic specialist where appropriate. Many of our children who require fillings see Leianne our excellent Dental Therapist for treatment. We recommend that children under the age of 7 brush twice daily with no more than a pea sized amount of children’s toothpaste. Children 7 years old and over can use an adult toothpaste twice daily.
