About your clinician

Abdul Wahab offers special children’s examinations in Glastonbury, Ledbury, Ross-on-Wye, Tewkesbury. Abdul qualified as a dentist in India and has over fifteen years’ experience in India and the UAE. While he is waiting for an opportunity to sit the registration examinations to practice as a dentist in England, Abdul registered with the GDC as a dental therapist.

“The dental therapist and team put my daughter completely at ease, explained fully the treatment and outcomes.”

Good to know

A child’s dental examination includes a risk-assessment of your child’s oral health. Regular examinations help identify concerns, such as caries, bite, cracks and uneven wear. Early identification helps to protect your child’s developing dentition.

If your child requires further treatment, your dental therapist can develop a treatment plan. Dental therapists provide further hygiene and preventive treatment, including fluoride painting. They are also qualified to perform routine treatments, including placing fillings.

A dental examination is an excellent opportunity for a child, parent or guardian to discuss oral health concerns and the development of their teeth. We have a referral system in place for patients who present with a concern a dentist needs to diagnose and treat. This is particularly relevant for older children developing their secondary teeth.

Should your child require additional treatment, one of the team can discuss payment options. We offer good value dental plans for both adults and children that help to spread the cost of regular examinations and include a 10% discount on essential treatments.

Book soon!

Places are limited, so please book your child’s affordable dental examination soon. One of our reception team will be in place to confirm the date and time. They will also request payment in advance to secure your place.

About Children’s Day

For children, going to the dentist can be a daunting experience.

Some children are more nervous than others, and others have difficulty processing all the new information. Our dedicated children’s days aim to create an especially child-friendly and welcoming environment of these special days dedicated to promoting children’s oral health.

We look forward to meeting your children!
