Children’s Dentistry: Nurturing Smiles for Life at Manchester Rd Dental Surgery
At Manchester Rd Dental Surgery, we believe that every child deserves a joyful and positive start on their dental journey. Our dedicated clinicians are committed to ensuring the well-being of your entire family, every step of the way.
Your Child’s First Dental Experience:
We are strong advocates for providing your little ones with an exceptional first dental encounter. This initial experience sets the foundation for a lifelong relationship with their family dentist and fosters a deep appreciation for good oral health.
Our Comprehensive Services:
Our family dental clinic offers a comprehensive range of services tailored to meet your child’s unique needs:
Regular Dental Examinations:
We encourage you to bring your child in when their first tooth appears or by their first birthday, whichever comes first. This early start allows us to monitor their oral health, screen for functional issues, and address any potential airway concerns. During these visits, we discuss brushing techniques, nutrition, decay prevention, and trauma prevention.
As your child grows, we’re here to provide custom-fitted mouthguards to protect their precious smiles during sports and physical activities.
Our preventive approach includes applying fissure sealants when indicated, to safeguard your child’s teeth against cavities
Assessment of Orthodontic Needs:
We monitor your child’s growth and development and assess their orthodontic requirements, ensuring timely intervention when necessary.
We’re here to make sure your children and teenagers receive the support they need, setting them on a path to optimal oral health and lifelong smiles.
Did you know we offer Free Kids’ Dental Treatment under the Child Dental Benefits Scheme (CDBS)?:
We are proud to support the Child Dental Benefits Scheme (CDBS), which provides financial assistance ($1052 per child over two consecutive calendar years) for basic dental services for children aged 0 to 17?
