MANY CHILDREN STILL SUFFER SERIOUS DECAY, despite improvements to the dental health of children in the UK in recent years. The risk of tooth decay is increased by too much sugary food and drink.

Cut Back on the Sugar

But sugar-free does not necessarily mean tooth safe. Erosion of tooth enamel is caused by acidic food and drinks including diet versions of fizzy drinks, smoothies and fruit juices/squashes, and affects the majority of children in the UK by the time they are 12 years old.

You can reduce the harm done to children’s oral health by avoiding sugary and acidic food and drink outside regular mealtimes.

British Dental Association

The BDA campaign seeks to encourage:

  • supermarkets to restrict the availability of unhealthy foods at checkouts
  • cinemas to downsize their unhealthy food and drink offerings
  • schools and hospitals to withdraw unhealthy food and drink from vending machines

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.
