The Blue House Family welcomes new patients of all ages for private dental treatment. Southfields Dental Centre provides a full range of treatments for children, with members of The Blue House Membership Plan benefitting from free check-ups for children up to the age of three if they come at the same time as the adult member.
We are committed to preventative dentistry, stopping problems before they start whenever possible and providing any treatment necessary to fix issues and make sure they stay fixed. We are a well-established community dentist and recommend that children start to visit us as soon as their first teeth appear.
Establishing a good oral healthcare regime for your children from an early age increases their chances of having a healthy mouth for life. By bringing your young children to the practice you help to make visiting the dentist a positive, everyday experience that’s nothing to be afraid of. Our whole team is caring and welcoming, and your child will soon start to view the dentist as a friendly face they look forward to seeing every six months.
By coming along to an appointment with their parents, young children familiarise themselves with the practice environment and feel comfortable. Watching a parent or guardian sit in the chair and open their mouth for the dentist to look at their teeth encourages children to role-play and copy what they've seen, making dental appointments a fun experience.
We offer preventative treatments for children, including fluoride applications and fissure sealants to help prevent decay, and our hygienists provide children with top tips on how to brush their teeth at home, presented in an age-appropriate, engaging manner.
Should your child require any further treatment, this will be undertaken gently here at the practice. We know the importance of building an ongoing relationship of trust between patient and dentist and believe that the earlier this relationship is established, the better the chances of keeping up good oral healthcare practices for life.
