We are an approved Childsmile practice - a programme designed to improve the dental health of children in Scotland. Primary care dental practice visits are available from 6 months when you will meet our Childsmile nurse Kirsty. She will give diet and tooth brushing advice and from Age 2 - 12 the application of Fluoride varnish two times per year. Fluoride varnish slows down the development of decay by stopping demineralisation. The programme has now been extended up to Age 18 to ensure good oral health is maintained into adulthood.
Kirsty recently completed the Childsmile training with NES - SQA at SCQF level 8 and 45 hours of CPD. Childsmile sessions are available in the practice from January 2024
