At Leamington Spa Dental Practice, we pride ourselves on being a family practice, welcoming patients of all ages. There has been a dental practice on this site for some 150 years, and many generations of the same families have come to us for treatment over that time.
We offer both NHS and private dental treatment for children, and recommend that you bring them in to see us when their first teeth start to appear. Establishing good dental habits from an early age increases your child's chances of keeping them up at an older age, and of having healthy teeth for life. It also helps children to see dental appointments as an everyday, positive experience, and to regard the dentist as a friendly face they enjoy seeing every six months.
Regular dental and hygiene appointments also lessen the chances of your child developing tooth decay, which is still very high among youngsters in the UK. Preventing this from happening by establishing a good dental routine at home combined with regular visits to the practice also reduces the chances of your child needing more invasive treatment, again making dental visits a more positive experience whilst also being better for their health.
We can arrange appointments so that very young children can be seen at the same time as their parent, guardian or siblings. By watching mum or dad sit in the chair and open their mouth for the dentist to have a look inside, children will learn that this is nothing to be scared of, and may be happy to copy what they have seen.
Should your child need more extensive treatment, you can rest assured that we practise gentle dentistry, meaning the experience will be pain-free and as stress-free as possible. All of our dentists are experienced in working with children, and will work hard to put them at ease during treatments.
