Children’s oral health
Children’s teeth are precious things and your little ones should really start visiting the dentist from the age of 12 months. It’s important to make dental trips fun so your child always has positive memories of the experience. Dental phobia is common even in youngsters, but enjoying a trip can help to make your child feel at ease. Children should learn about diet and oral hygiene from an early age and your dental team will be able to give you plenty of advice to keep those pearly whites beautifully bright.
