Alloway Place Dental Care provides the Child Smile programme. This is a preventative initiative aimed at improving oral health from birth. Parents will attend an appointment with our Childsmile Nurse Kellie Richardson, where advice is given on how to avoid the development of tooth decay. Advice will also be provided on diet and tooth brushing, parents will also be given free toothbrushes, toothpaste and drinking cups for their children. In some cases Fluoride varnishes may be applied to the teeth to facilitate the prevention and to stop the progression of decay.
Your child’s teeth will be examined by one of our dentists every 6 months from around 18 months and given any treatment your child might need. As children get older additional preventative care can be provided such as fissure sealants.
The programme results in children with healthier mouths who are comfortable visiting the dentist.
