Mark Fellows is extremely kind and gentle. He is very reassuring. Great family dentist, my children love going to the dentist.
As dental professionals we believe in preventative dental care and encourage our patients to bring their children to the practice from an early age. Regular check-ups from a young age will ensure children won't suffer from untreated dental decay with devastating effects to their growing dentition. There are a number of preventative treatments that our team can provide for children.
Fluoride applications are a safe and effective way to safeguard your growing child's teeth from developing decay. The fluoride is painted onto the surface of the child's teeth and this helps to mineralise the teeth and make them stronger. Fissure sealants are tooth coloured and where clinically needed, these are applied to the biting surfaces of children's teeth to prevent decay.
Studies have shown that the younger the age that you bring your child to the dental practice, even if just for a check-up, the more likely they are to have a positive experience and grow up not to be afraid of a visit to a dental practice. Our team will take special care of your child to make them feel safe and cared for.
Treating a child from an early age also allows the dentist to spot early signs of underbites, cross bites or overbites developing. As with most things, the sooner you can start to treat it, the quicker it can be resolved.
To help make your child's visit to the dentist as fun as possible we have created a relaxing waiting area with toys and books for younger patients to enjoy.
In the surgery, we have a television screen on the ceiling which plays fun DVDs to watch during your appointment. We find this is great for adults as well. Feel free to bring your favourite DVD or you can choose from our selection.
