When delivered with skill, kindness and care, a visit to the dentist can be a fun and rewarding experience for children of all ages.

Regular trips to the dentist are essential for children as they have weaker enamel than adults, meaning decay can spread quickly. We like to see our child patients at least three times a year. Dental x-rays are also important to make sure that teeth are progressing and moving properly.

Your child should get into the habit of brushing his or her teeth twice a day. You can brush your child's teeth when they are young, but it is a good idea to teach them to do it themselves around the age of seven. It is important that there is fluoride in your child's toothpaste, but not too much - be sure to check with the dentist about how much fluoride you are using.

The dentist will also speak to you about your child's diet. The amount of sugar and acid should be limited, particularly between meals or before bedtime. This includes not just sweets but also hidden sugars, such as the ones in breakfast cereals.

A fissure sealant is a thin, plastic coating that is applied to the pits on the surfaces of back teeth in order to prevent food and bacteria from becoming trapped and causing decay. They are safe, effective and painless. We reccomened that our child patients have fissure sealants carried out as soon as their adult teeth come through; these can be carried out by our Dental Therapist.

We believe children should be aware and understand as much as they can about the importance of all the above preventitive steps. This will ensure that they continue to maintain these good habits as they progress through life, appreciating the importance of dental health.

Restricted Opening Times:

To our Patients and Friends of The Brookmans Park Dental Practice,

Our team have been working tirelessly to keep our practice a clean and safe environment for you.

As a Dental Practice, we work in an environment where the prevention of the spread of a whole range of infections is woven into everything we do. In addition to our usual scrupulous cross infection control measures, we have been paying particularly close attention to all government guidance and updates related more specifically to Corona virus.

Given the unprecedented situation in the UK regarding the rapidly spreading COVID-19 virus, we feel we must use our own clinical judgement and act in the best interests of our patients and staff.

We feel it is essential that we do our part to reduce the spread of this virus, and so, it is with very heavy hearts, that we have taken to decision to temporarily suspend routine treatments until further notice. We will of course keep you updated with the latest information on our website www.bpdp.co.uk

Looking after the health of our patients is our absolute priority and so we will be operating an Emergency Telephone Consultation service for our patients who have urgent pain or swelling during this period of closure. If you have a dental emergency, please call us on 01707 644426 or 111 and follow the instructions on the recorded message.

As a team, we are doing everything we possibly can to remain fit, well and able to work so that we can continue our usual high standard of dental care for you when we return.

Thank you for your support, and stay safe,
The Team at The Brookmans Park Dental Practice
