Here at Lushington Dental Practice, we pride ourselves on being great with Children as well as Adults.
We strive to get children seen as young as possible so that they can get used to our environment and get to know the team. This process is called “desensitisation” and allows children to develop a healthy association with the dentist, rather than one of fear.
We see all children for free! Even if they don’t sit in the dental chair, it is vital that we get them into the right habits early on as this can help them keep their teeth for life!
Our aim is to educate and help parents and children maintain a happy healthy smile for life. Prevention is always better than cure. We like to focus on prevention and a few tips for keeping your children’s teeth healthy are…

– Always use a Fluoride Toothpaste-encourage them to “spit out” not “rinse out”
– NICE Guidelines for toothpaste are:
