We are a family focused dental practice and strive to provide a relaxed family friendly environment.
We feel that it is important that children view going to the dentist as a normal family event where they are greeted by friendly faces and thus do not develop any unnecessary fear of dental visits. These days, because of water fluoridation, children often do not require so much dental treatment and are able to develop a much better appreciation of dental visits than their parents may have.
When children do require treatment it is important that it is managed in the correct manner so that children realise that it does not have to be an unpleasant experience.
Despite fluoridation, it is still essential that we establish good preventive routines for children as many adolescents become very complacent about dental care because they have had very little treatment and can tend to think they are invincible and will never develop problems.
