Childsmile is a national programme aimed to improve oral health in children. It is ran throughout schools, nurseries and dental surgeries.
Its main goal is to provide oral health information including tooth brushing and diet advice, and the application of fluoride varnish.
Trained Childsmile nurses will demonstrate best tooth brushing methods and discuss low sugar and acid diets to maintain healthy teeth and prevent cavities and erosion.
The application of fluoride varnish is simple and helps to acclimatise your children to the dental surgery setting. The fruit flavoured varnish is painted on to your child’s teeth with a small brush and helps to strengthen teeth and prevent decay.
Here at Whitburn Cosmetic Dental Clinic we are proud to be part of the Child Smile Program also to continue looking after your children’s teeth as they grow.
