NHS Funded Children’s Dentistry – SpaDental South-West
SpaDental Plymouth and SpaDental Saltash practices combine as SpaDental South-West to support oral health care for children under 12 years of age. We believe helping the youngest members of our community to keep their teeth healthy for life is important.
SpaDental hosts dedicated Children’s Days and we regularly open up appointments for children under 12 at school-friendly times. Our aim is to increase the number of children in our area who can visit the dentist to benefit from NHS funded children’s dentistry
Follow our Facebook pages too, where we post information when appointments are available at short notice.
Regular dental examinations make a lifetime of difference

NHS Funded Dentistry for children
We are able to offer NHS funded appointments for children under 12 because, for these young people, the focus is on preventive care and oral hygiene. We employ several dental therapists who trained as dentists overseas, and who are waiting for the opportunity to take their Overseas Registration Examinations. A therapist can offer a range of services to help establish good routines and, in conjunction with support at home, help children keep their teeth healthy.
With regular checks and early intervention if needed, a visit to the dentist can make a lifetime of difference.
Please note – Not all SpaDental practices have contracts with the NHS. Our private-only practices offer good value patient plans for children.
