"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"
We are very much a family practice and aim to provide optimal care for all ages of patients. Current guidelines suggest that babies should be registered with a dentist within their first year.
We participate in the childsmile programme which aims to improve the dental health of children living in Scotland. Adults also have specific care needs and we routinely screen adult patients for common dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease.
Adults are also screened for uncommon but more serious conditions like oral cancer and this is one of the reasons why even patients who wear complete dentures should attend for a dental examination once a year.
Many families attend for check ups together and seeing parents happily interacting with the practice team helps children feel relaxed and confident about visiting the practice.
