Dental health in young children is becoming more and more important as it prevents problems later in life. It is now recommended that children first see the dentist by the age of 1 or within 6 months after their first tooth comes in. Our team is reminding all of our patients that cavities in baby teeth can also sometimes affect the development of the permanent teeth and that regular check-ups starting in early childhood can make a difference to your child’s health.
The emphasis at this first dental appointment is that the child meets the dentist and becomes comfortable and friendly with our team of dental professionals in general. It is important that children build a good relationship with their dentist early in life. Our dentists always welcome parents to bring in their children as early as possible so that they can become familiar with our practice and the team.
At the first exam, our dentists will check all of your child’s existing teeth for decay, examine your child’s bite, and look for any potential problems with the gums, jaw, and oral tissues. We will also assess the need for fluoride and use this time to educate parents about oral health care basics for children, dental developmental issues and answer any questions you might have.
We always welcome any new or existing patients to bring in their children to meet one of our friendly dentists here in Woking. Please contact us for more information. We look forward to hearing from you.< Back to Blog
“We have been patients at Goldsworth Road Dental Centre Practice for about six years and my children are now seven and ten. In all that time they have never dreaded going, which is fantastic. Having a great dentist makes all the difference – I’m so relieved to have found Nikki (Triffitt), a highly skilled practitioner. ”
“From the minute you walk through the door at Goldsworth Road Dental Centre Practice, it’s fantastic.”
“I have been a patient at Goldsworth Road Dental Centre for about 25 years and my two children have grown up under their care. My husband is also a patient and we can't speak highly enough of them. It's an absolutely brilliant practice.
I found Goldsworth Road Dental Centre online. It looked like a very good practice, so I visited them for an initial assessment, which they handled very well. I have been with the practice for about a year now and I am totally delighted with everything, their service and treatment. It has all worked out 100% for me.
