The earlier, The better.


We understand that visiting the dentist can be a daunting experience at any age, let alone for small children. It is important that children are familiarized with visiting dentists from a young age. The sooner your child feels comfortable in the dentist, the better it will reflect on their dental health and frame-of mind as they become adults. Our staff are all very friendly and will help to put both you and your little one’s mind at rest. 

Baby teeth start to come through around the age of 6 months, so we’d recommend bringing your child in from then, all baby teeth should have erupted by approximately 33 months.
Adult teeth start to come through at around the age of 6, and typically, all adult teeth should have arrived by 13 years.

It is essential for your child to have regular dental check-ups so that we can provide oral health advice and monitor the development and health of the teeth in order to provide our best care towards your child’s individual needs.

At Number One Dental Practice we understand that convincing a child to brush their teeth can be challenging, which is why we provide age-specific tooth brushes and paste. We’re also friends with the tooth fairy!
