In the U.K dental decay remains the principal reason why 5-year-olds and under are admitted to hospital, highlighting the need for regular dental health appointments
and consistent at-home care. At Linden, our friendly team is here to help children form good long-term habits and to support parents in maintaining them at home.
We encourage parents to bring their child along to the practice before their first tooth erupts, as we find this allows them to familiarise themselves with the dental practice environment. This also means any problems are brought to our attention early and can be treated accordingly. Once your child’s teeth start to come through, the focus will be on engaging with your child, positive reinforcement, showing them how to brush and teaching them about the right foods and drinks to consume.
Our compassionate, friendly and patient team is fantastic with children and dedicated to setting them on the right path to a healthy smile for life. We’re here for your child every step of the way as their smile evolves and to help transform any dental anxieties they might have, into confidence.
At Linden Dental, we’re able to see children of existing patients under the NHS – contact us today to book your child in for a dental health appointment.
