What age should I bring my child to see the dentist?

As early as possible. Bringing your child in from an early age can help avoid building up anxiety or fear about dental visits. It will also get them used to sitting in the dentist’s chair, having their teeth examined and the dental environment in general.

I have a fear of the dentist. Is there anything that can help me overcome my fear?

We are very sympathetic towards patients anxieties and fears. Treatment can normally be carried out routinely by simply taking our time. If your anxieties are still too high to have treatment, we may offer you sedation.

How often should I go to the dentist?

As a rule of thumb, you should visit the dentist every 6 months for a check-up. We strongly believe that when it comes to dental health, it’s best to catch things early.
