Parents often ask us when they should first bring their children to the surgery. Our answer is always the earlier the better, especially where dental knowledge is concerned. Even before your child is born we can start to educate you in aspects of dental care relevant to your baby’s health.
“Good dental health learned early should stay with your child for life.”
One problem has always been how to create a happy and enjoyable environment in which to learn. We embrace the latest preventive methods that sadly were not available to us as children.
We believe that good dietary advice and toothbrushing instruction are both simple and easy forms of tender loving care for your child’s teeth. At Oakmead we encourage all our children to climb on their parent’s lap for a ‘ride in the chair’ as soon as they are able to. This leads onto a simple routine examination at those all-important preschool years.
