Your child’s oral health is important to us – that’s why we are a child-friendly dentist
Regular visits to the dentist are just as important to your child’s health as a trip to the doctor’s. With regular visits, your child will be instilled with the knowledge that frequent brushing is vital to gleaming teeth and perfect gums.
We are proud to be part of the national Childsmile program. Good oral health in childhood means healthy teeth and gums throughout life. Childsmile is working to ensure all children, regardless of income or background, have the best possible start.
