Looking after little teeth
We encourage you to bring your children for check-ups, as growing teeth need regular attention to ensure they stay healthy and problem-free. Baby teeth start to appear when your child is around six months old, so this is the ideal time to bring them for their first visit.
To help make things easier, many of our practices hold special Children’s Days during the school holidays. This means you can bring your children to see us for a check-up without worrying about them missing any lessons!
- Some SpaDental practices only offer private care. Parents who are ‘pay as you go’ or SpaDental Plan patients are encouraged to ask about arrangements for children’s appointments.
- Practices providing NHS care register children when space is available, and maintain waiting lists. Although the practices prefer not to add children to a waiting list, sometimes it is unavoidable.
