"My family & I all use this dentist and they are great. My children are seen by Lynsey the childsmile nurse every 6 months and she is great with them. She shows them how they should be brushing their teeth in a fun & friendly way"
Children with healthy teeth and gums will hopefully go on to enjoy a lifetime of good dental health. We try hard to make visits to the practice fun for children and to help them develop their confidence. It's very satisfying for us to see kids smiling when they come in for their appointments.
Childsmile is a Government backed programme designed to improve the oral health of children in Scotland . The Childsmile programme aims to ensure that from the age of 6 months children benefit from Oral Health Advice and regular Dental Checkups. Also from the age of two children should have twice yearly fluoride varnish applications to reduce their risk of tooth decay.
Carrieann, our friendly Childsmile Nurse, gives help and advice to ensure that our child patients get the best possible start. She also helps children become familiar with the practice, ensuring that they are confident and relaxed.
