Preventative dentistry for children
With just two examinations in a year, your child will stand a much better chance of avoiding fillings and extractions.
We recommend that all of our patients, however old or young, visit us at least twice a year for regular examinations so that we can spot early signs of decay and remove any build-up of plaque.
These examinations can also help us to detect early signs of more serious illnesses such as oral cancer. Even our patients who have dentures are recommended to visit every six months.
As well as twice-yearly examinations with a Damira dentist which can help benefit you and your child from preventative treatment, our hygienists can also provide:
- Dietary advice (including the use of food and sugar diaries)
- Oral hygiene advice (we can recommend home-care products and techniques that best suit you and your child)
- Advice on how to prevent your child from sucking their thumb
- Specialised cleaning for children undergoing orthodontic treatments
- A full range of health and cosmetic clean and care treatments
- Help and support with children’s dental anxiety and fear
We also run smoking cessation clinics aimed at parents who want to stop smoking to improve their own health (including their dental health) and that of their children.
Our focus is on preventative care and on promoting good dental habits for your children to follow. However if your child should need more substantive treatment such as fillings or orthodontic work, all of our dental professionals can ensure it is a pain free and stress free experience (for both of you).

Words from our clients
I was very happy with the service I received! I was made to feel very relaxed. Dr Usman explained in detail everything which needed to be done whilst I was holding a mirror and showed me what he was going to do. I was offered the work to be done on my teeth there and then which really pleased me. Highly recommend.
Everyone I saw was compassionate, patient and kind. Having been nervous coming for a check-up and hygienist appointment, there was no judgement and I experienced great care from everyone.
Absolutely brilliant work and the staff are so helpful and friendly they couldn’t do enough for me. I highly recommend this place for anyone wanting staff and dentists that want what’s best for you! No pressure into having unnecessary treatment, they want what’s best for you. They all go above and beyond thank you to the team!
“I had an amazing experience today! Honestly. I Went for 2 fillings. Dr. Yap is amazing. He made me feel very comfortable, answered my questions and just reassured me. I didn’t feel any pain and was calm. Although I was extremely nervous. I am so happy! Even if you are the most nervous patient in the world he will make you feel safe!”
“A huge thank you to dentist Ed, nurse Lois and manager extraordinaire Clare, my phobia kept me up the night before treatment and I still can’t believe how easy you all made it. No pain, loads of support and understanding. I highly recommend your outstanding service.”
