Child patients are cared for within the NHS, and regular appointments are essential to identify any problems from an early age. It may be necessary for more frequent visits in some cases, for example during orthodontic treatment or if a high rate of decay is detected.
To help maintain a healthy mouth and smile, we recommend dental visits for children as soon as the first teeth erupt.
I cannot praise Grange Street Dental Practice enough. I am a nervous patient and have found all the staff to be extremely professional and very reassuring. I have always been able to get appointments on the day of calling or the following day. My children have also attended the practice and the staff were brilliant with them.
Mr Rawal and his team are changing my serious fear of any dental intervention, including the hygienist, into confidence. Never before in over sixty-five years of dentistry have I experienced such painless treatment - and my pain threshold is high. All the staff are friendly, informative and reassuring and I can thoroughly recommend the practice on every level.
I visited this dentist recently as an emergency as I had extreme pain in my tooth. After being 2 weeks on antibiotics which weren't working I found this dentist and contacted him immediately. It was late on Saturday evening and it was no bother for him to see me. He was very nice and made me feel very comfortable and relaxed straight away. After taking X-rays he extracted the tooth pain free and so fast. I cannot thank him enough. Would definitely recommend.
It is important to establish good oral hygiene habit from a young age and ensure excellent dental health as children grow. This is why we recommend children visit the dentist as soon as their first teeth erupt.
Our dentist are highly experienced working with patients of all ages and those with dental anxiety. By creating a welcoming environment, taking things slowly and making appointments “fun” we build up trust with your child so they can feel comfortable in a dental environment.
As a base we recommend children visit the dentist every 6 months for a checkup, though this may be more frequent depending on their oral health.
