We are proud to be a Childsmile Practice. Our specialised Dental Nurses provide Childsmile clinics weekly to continue to improve children's oral health. Come along and register!
Childsmile is a national programme designed to improve the dental health of children in Scotland. Childsmile practices target children from birth, promote oral health improvement and clinical caries prevention in primary care dental services. Additional clinical prevention programmes are delivered within priority nursery and primary school establishments through Childsmile nursery and Childsmile school.
From 6 months of age, appointments will be made for the child to attend dental services on a regular basis. A programme of Childsmile care tailored to meet the needs of the individual child will be provided by the dental team. This includes oral health advice e.g. on healthy weaning, teething and tooth brushing instruction, provision of free dental packs and from 2 years of age annual dental check ups and twice yearly fluoride varnish applications.
It is envisaged that children attending a Childsmile practice will continue with the same dental practice for their dental care needs throughout childhood and into adulthood.
