Child Smile

Child Smile is a programme to improve the dental health of children in Scotland.
With a little support and the right advice your child can grow up with healthy teeth and a confident smile.
The things you do now will help to give your child healthy teeth for life. Good teeth help your child feel confident, but tooth decay can cause pain and discomfort. We also know that children who develop tooth decay in their baby teeth are far more likely to have serious dental problems in later life.

At Hamilton Road Dental Practice, we are here to help you on your way. Child Smile promotes oral health from birth and is accessed via health visitor referral. You will meet your dental nurse when you make your first visit to the practice.

Your dental nurse will introduce you to the practice and chat with you about what you can do to keep your child’s teeth healthy.

The dental nurse will give you information on:
• How teeth grow and develop
• Teething
• Food and drinks
• Tooth brushing

Later on in the programme your child will be introduced to the dentist.

The dentist will examine your child’s mouth and chat with you about various treatments to protect your child’s teeth.

This visit will help your child to become familiar with being examined by the dentist, the dental surgery and its equipment in a friendly and fun way.

Give your child’s teeth the best possible start.
