Make your teeth an important part of life from a young age

Having healthy teeth and gums, a nice smile and non-invasive breath, all contribute to increasing confidence. In a food and drink orientated society, our teeth and gums are the first affected by our healthy and unhealthy habits. Everyone should be visiting the dentist on a regular basis, but we know this doesn’t happen. Whilst some have brilliant attendance, the majority of us wait until there is a problem. We are not telling you off. It’s just one of those things…

At Infinitidental Clinic we are passionate about educating our patients on ensuring their oral health care becomes a part of everyday life. We believe this has to start at a young age. We encourage you to bring your children to the dentist with you when you come for your check up and allow them to start becoming accustomed to the setting and the noise (which can be off putting). We are always open for you to pop in through non-clinical hours with your children to show them the practice, if it helps reduce their nerves.

Throughout 2017 Dr Nisha Patel (dentist), Suzanne Hogan (hygienist) and Stefania Branca (nurse), have held oral healthcare sessions at four primary schools in the Merton area, demonstrating to children correct brushing techniques and educating the children on good oral healthcare. If you are interested in your school having a similar session with us, please get in touch.

Ms Lynch from Poplar School left us a great review after our session with her pupils:

Just before Easter, Year 4 were very excited to have a school visit from the dentists! They had great props and were thorough with their explanations, ensuring it was pitched where all the children could access the information. The children were also given goodie bags to take away! We look forward to a visit from you next year!

Invest time into children’s teeth from a young age and it will be of benefit to all as they grow up. Remember if children have any serious damage to their milk teeth which results in the tooth being removed or falling out - their replacement adult teeth will not start growing until they are 6 or 7. So let’s limit the number of toothless wonders we have!
