Dental Check By One

19 February 2020

The British Society of Paediatric Dentistry launched ‘The Dental Check by One’ campaign back in 2017.  It has had a really positive impact with studies showing that there had already been an improvement in the number of 0-2 year olds accessing dental care by the end of 2018.

All of us at St James Dental are hugely passionate about supporting this campaign! We would urge anyone who knows of families with young babies to make them aware that bringing them to the dentist as early as possible (from when their first teeth appear or at least before their 1st birthday) holds a host of benefits for both their oral and overall health, including:

At St. James Dental we provide a full range of dental care for children free of charge on the National Health Service, this covers children up to the age of 18 or aged 18 if they remain in full time education. We are currently accepting all new patient registrations for NHS child patients.
