Caring for Children


It is the responsibility of parents and the dental team to ensure that your child’s teeth and mouth are healthy.
Together we lay the foundations by helping children adopt good oral health routines and habits as poor oral health
can have a negative impact on their general health.

With a little care there is no reason why children should need any treatment and they don’t need to go without occasional treats either.

Our dedicated team will help your child look after their teeth throughout their life.

We are delighted to provide free routine treatment for regular patients’ children up until they reach their eighteenth birthday

Protecting Your Child’s Smile…

Your child’s Visit to the Dentist

We advise parents to bring children aged around two or three with them to a routine check up appointment. Your child can have a ride on the chair if they want to and we can count their teeth if they are willing. It’s a fun visit that seems to work very well and it familiarises them with the surgery and surroundings.

Our practice is tailored to engage youngsters of all ages with a welcoming ambiance, a childrens’ corner and child-friendly staff and dentists.

We believe that visiting the dentist for your child should be an enjoyable occasion.

Fissure Sealing for Children…

fissure-sealing-kids-romford
Sealants are a safe and painless way of protecting your child’s teeth from decay. A sealant is a protective plastic coating, which is applied to the biting surfaces of the back teeth.
The sealant forms a hard shield that stops food and bacteria getting into the tiny grooves in the teeth and causing decay. The sealant forms a smooth, protective barrier by covering all the little grooves and dips (pits and fissures) in the surface of the tooth. Dental decay easily starts in these grooves.

It is totally pain free, and the teeth do not feel any different afterwards.

    Coronavirus (Covid-19) -Information

     

    BUSINESS AS USUAL BUT A NEW NORMAL

     

    Since June last year, following the first lock-down, dentists’ were sent a revised version of the Standard Operating Procedures (SOP’s) throughout the UK containing many changes to the way dental treatment was to be provided, to minimise the risk of spreading Covid-19 to both staff and patients. 

     

    The SOP’s state that once an aerosol generated procedure (AGP) has taken place in a surgery, the room must remain empty (fallow) for a period of time before being thoroughly cleaned. An aerosol generated procedure (AGP) is air or water spray (or a mix of both) from a dental instrument, for example, a high speed drill and ultrasonic scalers’ used by hygienists. These aerosols could result in the spread of Covid-19 and dentists and their staff are at very high risk of getting Covid-19 from their patients. Even though the transmission rate has fallen significantly, our standard operating procedures remain the same. This significantly affects the number of people we are able to see daily. We are working hard to limit the impact this has on patient waiting times for appointments.
