Childsmile @ Coatbridge Family Dental Care

Childsmile is an amazing national programme designed to improve the oral health of children in Scotland.  Coatbridge Family Dental Care are proud to be a part of the Childsmile programme.

How You Can Help Your Child

Try to register your baby with us as soon after birth or at least as soon as the first tooth appears.

From then on, bring your child to the dental practice every six months, or as often as we advise.

Bringing your baby to the  practice as early as possible helps them to get used to the sights, sounds and smells of a dental practice.

What we do at Coatbridge Family Dental Care for Childsmile

Your Childsmile Nurses

At your first visit it may be one of our qualified Childsmile dental nurses you see.

 Debbie Callaghan Childsmile Nurse Coatbridge Family Dental care

Your dental nurse will advise you on how to keep your child's teeth healthy and help with practical problems such as teething, weaning and choosing the right food and drinks.

Your dentist will check your child’s teeth and gums at least once a year, from around 18 months and give any treatment your child might need. These regular visits will also help your child to become familiar with being examined by your dentist.

From the age of two, our team can provide additional preventive care, such as fluoride varnish and fissure sealants.
