Our younger patients really enjoy coming to the dentist! Our program of preventive care means that the children who attend Standish Street Dental Practice are far less likely to suffer from dental problems requiring invasive treatments.
We endeavour to create a RELAXED, FUN environment for children - our Oral Health Educator, Victoria Lund, uses toys, models, pictures, films and games to help demonstrate tooth brushing techniques and the effects of different diets on teeth in our purpose-built children's advice area.
At regular appointments, the children's DIET is monitored along with BRUSHING and plaque levels and given a score, which encourages them to work hard between visits. We teach that tooth brushing can be fun and that it is best to learn how to look after your teeth from the very beginning.
