During the Coronavirus pandemic, we are having to utilise our resources as best as possible to look after our Registered patients. For this reason, we are unable to take on any new children patients at this time.
Parents are always made very welcome in the surgery with their children at all times. We encourage this for the child’s comfort and it allows the dentists to discuss the child’s oral health and development with the parent (s) at that same visit.
We always have a selection of stickers available for the children at our reception desk following a dental appointment.
The oral health and development of a child can change very quickly. We therefore recommend dental check-ups from a very early age, where preventative advice can be given. We also find that check-ups even from the age of one means that when the child has grown to approximately four, they are already co-operative and find it comfortable at the dentist. To aid this, we ensure that your children see the same dentist every visit (where possible).
If a parent is very apprehensive and nervous regarding dental treatment, we always recommend that the nervous parent does not have their treatment at the same appointment as the children’s check-ups. The apprehensive parent is the commonest cause of a child becoming scared of the dentist. By the nervous parent having a separate dental appointment for their own teeth, it allows a more relaxed atmosphere during the children’s appointments and far less fear will build.
To arrange an appointment, feel free to call our reception team on 0114 2377642 or pop in during our normal working hours.
You are now welcome to add your details to our adult new patient waiting list. We will then contact you when we are able to organise your New Patient Assessment with us, which costs £65 including any X-rays that are required. If you would like to add your name to this list, please contact us on 0114 2377642.
