At our dental practice, we specialise in children’s dentistry in Glasgow. For several years, our surgery has had hundreds of children from all over Glasgow come to us for their regular dental checkups.
Children’s dentistry is what we do on a daily basis, as well as dealing with adults and offering cosmetic dentistry but more often than not we will have a child patient. Many people do not know that when a child is born you can instantly register with a children’s dentist, this means that you can take your child to the dentist to make sure that their teeth and gums are maintained from a very early age.
Some people are also not aware that you should be cleaning a baby’s gum pads as an early habit. We have kids from weeks old who come and see us and we deal with teething issues as well as many other issues.
Not only does registering your child with us from an early age make sure that the child’s teeth and gums are maintained it also helps them get used to coming to a dentist, so in later years when a child will need some treatment they won’t feel anxious about coming in.
We have a Childsmile programme in place at our practice. This programme has been designed to improve the oral health of children in Scotland and reduce the inequalities when it comes to dental health and access to dental treatments.
Typically Childsmile is funded by the Scottish government and is made up of four elements. These are as follows:
- Childsmile Core Programme
- Childsmile Practice
- Childsmile Nursery and School
We are able to tell you more about Childsmile and what we can offer your child at our practice in Glasgow. Simply make an appointment with us today by giving us a call or filling out our contact form.
