At Bedale Dental Practice we are able to provide dental care, under NHS arrangements, for children up to the age of 18 years and in full time education or 19 years.
We understand that with having children comes the responsibility of raising them to be strong and healthy. With regular visits we can help you by monitoring their oral health and tooth development. We can advise on how best to keep your child free from tooth decay. If treatment is necessary early diagnosis means that it can be kept to a minimum, and as pain free as possible.
It must be taken into account that the oral health of your child reflects that of you, their parents; if you attend the dentist on a regular basis and look after your teeth and oral health it greatly increases the chance of your child remaining caries fee. It is good for your child to accompany you to the dentist so they can become accustomed to the people and environment. We welcome young babies even if they have no teeth yet or do not wish to be examined; we want to gain their trust so that they learn there is nothing to fear at the dentist.
