We can make a real difference to the dental health of children by making sure that they spend quality time caring for their teeth. We focus on prevention and health education, with the aim of getting them to adulthood without the need for fillings or other aggressive interventions.
Since many children find visiting the dentist a frightening or stressful experience, their most frequent contact at SDP will be with Fiona, our dental therapist. Fiona has extensive experience working with children and is a dab hand at creating a relaxed and happy environment. We recommend that your children visit Fiona regularly, when she will teach them to take responsibility for their teeth, and understand how to look after them properly. Hygiene and prevention are integral to each visit. Working with a dental therapist in this way means that your child can maintain good dental health for the long term.
Should your child require any specialist or more complex treatment, such as braces, Fiona will identify this quickly, and make the appropriate referral to the right member of our dental team.
