This half-term we will be dedicating Tuesday 19th and Wednesday 20th February to the younger generation of patients with our very first Kids’ Day at PMA Dental Care Gravesend.

Fun Activities

We will be running special events with lots of prizes, activities and fun!
Seeing the dentist needn’t be a daunting experience. Starting young with positive experiences will carry through to adulthood to help make your children more confident about going to the dentist.

Children of All Ages

We hope to make this day fun and engaging for children of all ages, although the types of activities and prizes will be aimed towards children of a pre-secondary school age.
However older children (and parents) are still more than welcome too. Please telephone reception on 01474 365671 to get booked in.
not scary
Dr Nicola Brown says: “I’m really looking forward to this event because it gives us an opportunity to try and build confidence in children so that they aren’t afraid to come regularly…I’m really not that scary!”

Prevention

Nearly a third of 5-9 year olds have never seen a dentist or havent been in over a year. Catching tooth decay early means it can be treated easily. It is also an easily preventable disease.
Tooth decay is the most common reason for hospital admission in children aged between 5 – 9. Over 26,000 children were admitted to hospital with tooth decay in 2018.
A national campaign, Dental Check By One, has been running to encourage parents to get their children to be seen by the dentist before their first birthday.

Its Free

So no matter how young your child we recommended that they come along to see the dentist. PMA Dental Care Gravesend always sees children for free on the NHS.


COVID-19 UPDATE - November 2020

Despite the latest lockdown we are still open.

Due to social distancing requirements and enhanced infection control procedures we are having to run the practice at a reduced capacity then we would do normally.

Opening hours are 9.00am to 5.00pm Mon-Thurs and 9.00 to 4.00pm Fridays.

Whilst we are doing check ups and routine dentistry we have long waiting times for appointments.

We also run a telephone emergency service during normal working hours. Out of hours advice is available via NHS Direct on 111.

Due to our reduced capacity we are unable to take on new NHS patients but can provide emergency advice and care if appropriate.
