From toddlers to teenagers, our team of dental experts hope to encourage all children on the importance of maintaining a healthy smile for life, guiding on oral care and ensuring they have regular check-ups.
Children aren’t always aware of how important oral health really is. With poor dental care, problems such as decay, infection, damage and even missing teeth can all occur – and in some cases, gum disease can lead to other health concerns.
That’s why we aim to establish good oral care habits early, and encourage parents to bring their children to our practice early in life, so they can familiarise themselves with our staff and the treatment process. Here’s what you can expect from us:
Poor oral health can lead to serious health concerns. Gum disease (periodontitis), for example, has been linked to conditions such as respiratory disease, rheumatoid arthritis and coronary artery disease.
We usually recommend children attend a check-up twice a year. However, those with poor oral care may need more visits.
We’re well-known in Boroughbridge for our family-friendly team and our warm, welcoming chairside manner. We’ll always put your child first and try to make their time fun and exciting, so they can feel comfortable and confident about their smile.
Children often learn by example, so even little ones who are reluctant to brush their teeth may be more interested in doing so if they see you doing it. Picking out a new toothbrush, putting music on while they brush and rewarding with stickers and words of encouragement can all go a long way in helping them learn to care for their teeth. Finally, keep sugar in their diet to a minimum – it’s the leading cause of tooth decay – and ensure they attend regular check-ups.
Yes, lots! A few include:

We know how important it is for children to feel safe, secure and happy at the dentists. We’ll start their care with a consultation, where they can become familiar and confident with the practice and team.
We’ll discuss any treatment recommendations with you, and your child if possible. We’ll never suggest a procedure that isn’t needed, and will try to answer any questions you have and demonstrate the process, if possible.

Simply follow each step to receive a tailored recommendation from your dentist.
