Please note that many of our children’s facilities are currently unavailable due to COVID-19 procedures, but we are still the same friendly, welcoming team – behind the masks!
Children at Urchfont Dental Care
We aim to make a visit to the dentist an enjoyable experience for children. If they enjoy their visit, they are more likely to invest in their own oral healthcare as they grow up. We have a ‘children’s zone’ in the waiting room, with a playhouse, books and games tablet. There is comfortable seating for children and their parents/carers.
Once in the treatment room, children are invited to be involved at every stage of their treatment, and the dentist will explain and discuss treatment options in detail with parents and carers.
We offer a range of dental services for children:
- FREE plaque disclosing sessions
Children are invited to brush their teeth and then use plaque disclosing tablets to spot areas they are missing.
- Affordable bespoke sports’ guards in a wide range of colours and styles (including embedded name badges!)
We are finalists in the Private Dentistry Awars 2019 “Best Child-friendly Practice” category!
“ My child was very nervous about seeing the dentist regarding her over growing tooth as the last dentist was going to inject and remove.
