All staff at our 1Smile Clinics are very passionate about their job and we have an excellent reputation for being very friendly. We understand that children are nervous about visiting us so we always go that extra mile to ensure that they always feel safe and welcome. Our dentists will always try to involve children by showing them the instruments and explaining what they are used for and by doing this they are also educating them.
At our 1Smile Clinic’s our dental team’s provide Childmile to help educate and teach children on how to brush their teeth and maintain their oral hygiene. Childsmile began in 2008 and is a national programme designed to improve the oral health of children in Scotland. We aim to educate children from a very early age right through until they are in primary school.
It is important that you bring your child to visit us routinely every 6 months for examinations. At these appointments we will:
- Provide you with a free childsmile pack which includes a toothbrush and tube of toothpaste for your child.
- Advise you off the best food and drinks you should be giving your child.
- Apply flouride (a mineral to help prevent tooth decay) onto your childrens teeth with a soft brush.
- Demostrate tooth brushing techniques.
At our 1Smile Clinics our main aim is to make sure that your child receives the best possible care and learn basic tooth brush and oral health care insructions from an early age that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
Please contact any of our 1Smile Clinics for an appointment today or ask your local Dental Health Adviser and they will arrange an appointment with us for you.
We understand that all parents want the best for their children therefore at any 1Smile Clinic we also offer private treatment for children. If you are considering this option please do not hesitate in speaking to any of our staff members and they will be more than happy to discuss all the available options for you and your child.
