We encourage children to be brought along to check up appointments from an early age. It is now recommended that children have their teeth looked at by a dentist once they are a year old.

First teeth matter! With early intervention, we are often able to prevent disease occurring by giving advice and applying fluoride treatments and fissure sealants if appropriate. We make visits fun by giving younger children stickers and older children tooth brushing timers, disposable mouth mirrors or mini toothpastes.

Children and adults requiring orthodontics are referred to either Yeovil Hospital or a local specialist orthodontic practice.
