Why is Oral Hygiene Education Necessary?
As a parent or caregiver, you probably already make sure your child cleans their teeth twice a day but sometimes additional help can be very useful. Here at The Dental Group, we have a Dental Therapist who is specially trained to help children achieve and maintain high standards of dental health. They are particularly good at helping nervous or anxious children overcome any fears or phobias.
How Could a Dental Therapist Help Your Child?
Our dental therapist can talk about the importance of good dental care and will provide practical help and advice on looking after teeth and gums at home. As a dental professional, our therapist is extremely good at talking with children and knows exactly how to explain dental treatments and dental care, using terminology that is child-appropriate. They can gently encourage your child to ask any questions they may have concerning their dental care so they not only feel comfortable receiving treatment, but grow up with all the knowledge required to maintain a healthy mouth into adulthood.
Our dental therapist liaises very closely with our dentists to ensure young patients receive the most appropriate and highest quality dental care.
