Family Dentistry

FAMILY

We are a family friendly practice and take pride in treating all generations.

CHILDREN

We know that a child’s first experience of the dentist needs to be a positive one in order to build confidence for the future. Parents are encouraged to bring children to the practice from an early age so that the growth and development of the teeth and jaws can be monitored. An orthodontic opinion can be obtained where appropriate from our in-house orthodontist, Rosemary Jones.

We encourage the protection of permanent teeth with a plastic coating (fissure sealing) to prevent decay. This, together with diet and oral hygiene advice, will minimise the need for future treatment. If you think your child would benefit from this treatment please contact the practice for more information.

NERVOUS PATIENTS

For some, we realise that a trip to the dentist is a stressful experience which is why we go out of our way to accommodate and reassure our nervous patients. Any fear or apprehension will be taken seriously and steps taken to ensure that you remain in control of what is happening at all times.

Your treatment will be individually tailored and will progress at a pace with which you are happy. You are welcome to visit the surgery ahead of any treatment to look around and get a feel for the place. You can listen to your ipod if that comforts you and we will see you when the practice is quieter.
