AT A GLANCE
Our focus for all patients is always that prevention is better than cure, and this is especially the case with children.
We encourage parents to bring children along from an early age as this makes the dental practice a familiar place, helping to prevent dental phobia or anxiety later in life.
ENCOURAGE GOOD HABITS
We’re a very friendly team, many of whom have children of our own, and we look forward to meeting yours and getting them enthused about good oral hygiene and diet.
At Park Avenue Dental Care we provide dental care for all the family. Prevention is better than cure and with this in mind we place great emphasis on the dental health of children and young adults.
It is our belief that if positive habits regarding oral hygiene and diet are established early in a child’s life it is perfectly possible to reach adulthood free of any cavities or gum disease. This is what we all want for our children.
We engage with children in a friendly and inclusive way to reduce anxiety and make visits to the dentist a pleasant experience whilst giving detailed advice on dietary risks and important tips on oral hygiene to the parents.
Please don’t worry if your child is anxious, a friendly dentist with a warm smile, calm demeanour and a patient approach will establish enough trust to break down their barriers of fear.
In line with the optimum prevention protocols we regularly apply fluoride varnish to children’s teeth based on their age and individual risk factors in order to increase their resistance to tooth decay.
And most important of all we make it fun with balloons and stickers for the young ones as our little parting thank you gift.
