We know how important it is for you to find a dental practice that’s right for your whole family. Many of us at Burgess Hill Dental have children, and grandchildren… and we love seeing our younger patients and setting them on the road to a lifetime of good oral health.
We can help you teach your children about how important it is to clean their teeth properly, as well as showing them what they need to do. We can talk to them about healthy eating (including very importantly what they drink), and identify any potential problems as soon as they become visible. Children can enjoy a ride on the dental chair and become friends with their dentist and nurse.
Above all, we want you to feel relaxed and welcome. If one of your little ones cries or gets fidgety (or even one of your older ones), we just want you to know that it isn’t a problem. Children will be children. What matters is that your children grow up not being worried about visiting the dentist, so that they can feel confident about their smile for the rest of their lives. We know too well that bad childhood experiences can put people off dentists for life and we do everything we can to make sure that doesn’t happen. Our therapist Lucy and all our dentists are very kind and patient with children (with everyone actually!) and can make even the most nervous child relax. We are super gentle and have plenty of tricks up our sleeve to make visiting the dentist a positive experience.
For your peace of mind, all children (and adults) receive mercury-free dentistry. We also use sealants where appropriate to reduce the risk of tooth decay.
Currently, we offer NHS care as an option for the children of Private and Denplan patients. We also have Plans for Children, which enables us to schedule more time for your child with our dentists and hygiene and therapy team to really focus on preventing dental disease and promoting health. Denplan for Children also includes optional worldwide dental injury and dental emergency cover (Supplementary Insurance) and helpline access.
