St.James Dental back the Check by One campaign

13 November 2017

All parents and guardians are advised to ensure that young children are taken to see a dentist as soon as their first teeth come through, and before their first birthday.

The British Society of Paediatric Dentistry have recently launched a UK wide Dental Check by One campaign to increase the number of children who access dental care aged 0-2 years.

Don’t forget children can be seen at St.James Dental under the National Health Service free of charge. To register or book an appointment contact Laura our Patient Co-Ordinator on 01452 727 665.

Why by the age of one?

The advice is that your child should see a dentist from six months because that’s when first teeth usually come through. By the age of one, most of your baby’s front teeth should be present.

It’s an opportunity for the dentist to look into his or her mouth and check that the teeth are developing as they should. We also know that 1 in 8 three year old children have visible dental decay, so we don’t want children waiting until school age for their first dental visit.

Dental decay is almost always preventable and we want your child to grow up with healthy teeth that are free from decay. St.James Dental has advocated this approach for over 30 years.
