At Smiles by Design, our team are highly trained and experienced in techniques designed to help children to feel relaxed at the dentist. Childhood has been identified as the most important period in a person’s ‘dental lifetime’ and can affect their future dental health.
We believe that the gentle approach prepares a child to enter adulthood with a positive attitude towards the dentist. Children should be seen from approximately 8-12 months old and this helps to get them familiar to the environment and enables us to monitor the child throughout their childhood.
We are dedicated to preventative dentistry and modern approaches are now very focused on prevention early on in development. We provide dental health education in a relaxed and comfortable environment. Children are normally seen every six months depending on their oral health risk factors. We provide fissure sealants that coat and protect the developing adult molars and Fluoride varnish application to reduce the risk of decay. Children can be seen on our NHS list and are exempt from payments up until the age of 18 years old.
