Personal Note

I have focussed my energies in my practice to help parents and children understand how dental disease can be managed and controlled.

I feel very strongly that every child has a right to excellent oral health and should come to expect the highest standard of oral health and oral health care for the rest of their lives.

I aim to provide dental care at reasonable /cost effective rates thereby making paediatric dental care available to every child.

I encourage parents to seek out a first visit for their oldest child around the first birthday. In this way they can have an opportunity to obtain important preventive information, learn how to start oral hygiene routines and eliminate/control habits which lead to rapid and sometimes rampant tooth decay in early childhood eg bottles of milk/juice/on demand nursing during sleep time.

Our practice has points of interest for children of all ages. It is filled with child friendly curios making each visit a relaxed one. It is our aim to let the child patient feel completely at home. They often sit at the colouring station to complete a picture for our art gallery. My team and I feel very strongly that time spent at the first visit in this way allows the child to feel this is their place, their dental home
