The earlier young children attend their Dentist - we advise from one year old - the earlier any potential problems are seen, thus preventing children having to go through the trauma of operative dentistry or even having to have teeth extracted, under a general anaesthetic.

The other main advantage is that they are helped by our people to be happy in our Dental Practice and even to look forward to coming!

Figures published by the Royal College of Surgeons showed that only 20.2% of  one to two year old children visited the Dentist and in England , last year, there were 9,220 tooth extractions from children in hospital, with all the pain and distress that caused.

We welcome and look forward to seeing children, of all ages in our Practice.

Coronavirus Phase 2 - Dental Emergencies

From Tuesday 23rd June

Dental Practices in England were given Permission to re-open for certain emergency procedures, from the 8th June 2020. In Scotland, we heard from the Chief Dental Officer for Scotland on 18th June 2020 that the re-opening of Dental Practices could happen the following week – for Dental Emergencies.

It should be noted that Dental Practices will only be allowed to open ONE surgery, with one Dentist, and only see patients with a pre-arranged appointment, to examine them. We have still been limited to providing Advice, Antibiotics, Analgesics.

The crucial difference from Phase 1 is that we can now actually see our own patients for emergency appointments.
