We’ll make every visit a positive one
for your child.
At Beecroft Smiles we have a pro-active approach to our work with children. We aim specifically to build trust with children and work very gently and progressively with them to achieve an enjoyable and fun experience at the dentist. We hope to guide children towards a lifetime of good dental care and dental health.
We allow extra time where required for very young or anxious chidren. Please let us know if your child is anxious about the dentist or has had a bad experience previously. We always make it our goal to convert children into loving the dentist!
When Should I First Take my Child to the Dentist?
Your child should come in for a visit at the age of three. This visit is partly to check that all is okay. It’s also best to introduce your child to dentistry when he or she is not likely to need any dental work because that way they’ll remember to visit for the right reasons… like getting a ride in the dentist’s chair. This way you’re setting your child up for a lifetime of positive associations with dentistry.
Your children can have fun drawing or colouring in the children’s corner set up in our treatment room. We’ll show them how the chair moves and make them laugh by blowing up a glove and drawing teeth on it. If they’re comfortable enough, we might polish their teeth, but we’ll see how they go on the day.
