At what age should I bring my child?
We recommend that they should have been at least once before age 1, even if it is just accompanied with someone. Getting children used to the environment helps us build positive experiences and makes visits in the future much easier.
How often per day should children be brushing their teeth?
Twice per day for around 2 minutes. If they are younger than around 6 then we recommend it is aided by an adult. The younger the child the more help they need!
Should my child be using fluoride toothpaste?
Yes! When it is time to brush your child’s teeth, fluoride toothpaste should be used. Follow guidance on the packaging for the correct age range. Only alter this if advised by your dentist.
Our guidelines surrounding fluoride are based on strong scientific evidence which proves the benefit of fluoride for our teeth and the safety of using it. These guidelines can be found here.
