Childsmile at IDP

Preventitive Dental Care for your family

Preventitive Dental Care for your family at Inverurie Dental Practice

Inverurie Dental Practice is a Childsmile Dental Practice. This means the dental team will:

  • give information on how teeth grow and develop and carry out regular checks to make sure the teeth and gums are healthy.
  • offer hints and tips on dental care.
  • demonstrate and explain toothbrushing.
  • promote toothbrushing messages e.g. spit don’t rinse.
  • advise on weaning and healthy snacks and drinks.
  • provide clinical care including twice yearly fluoride varnish.
  • At your initial visit it may be the dental nurse you see. The dental nurse will advise you on how to keep your child’s teeth healthy and help with practical problems such as teething, weaning and choosing the right food and drinks.
  • The dentist will check your child’s teeth and gums at least once a year, from around 18 months and give any treatment your child might need. These regular visits will also help your child to become familiar with being examined by a dentist.
  • From the age of two, the dental practice team can provide additional preventive care, such as fluoride varnish and fissure sealant
