Appointments early in a child’s development ensure that they feel comfortable in the dental environment which reduces the chance of potential dental fear or phobias that can more commonly arise as they get older.

It is also a good opportunity for you as a parent or guardian to obtain some tailor-made advice regarding oral hygiene and diet to ensure your child’s teeth stay healthy.


When do I start bringing my child to check-ups?

We advise that you consider bringing your child for their first dental appointment as soon as they start getting their first baby (deciduous) teeth.

Will they have any preventative treatments?

In subsequent visits, we may apply fluoride varnish to the back teeth. Studies have shown this reduces the chance of dental decay in these harder-to-reach areas.

Occasionally we will consider fissure sealants in their first adult molars which come through around the age of 6 to 7 years. This is a permanent flowable sealant of the grooves of the back teeth to reduce food collection in these areas, reducing the chance of decay and making the teeth easier to clean. This is painless and requires no local anaesthetic. It is a non-invasive preventative treatment.

How regularly should they attend?

We advise children to attend every 6 months for check-ups as there can be so many changes as your child grows. We can identify developmental problems in teeth and treat decay if it arises promptly. Occasionally, we will adjust the regularity of check-ups to 3 monthly intervals if a child is deemed to be at a higher risk of decay. We can also pick up when braces are required to be able to refer them to the orthodontist for treatment at the right time.

This is an excellent dental practice that I've been recommending to my coworkers for awhile. The staff is friendly and professional. The sisters who run the practice are thorough not just with the examinations and cleaning, but also make sure to give me personalized and practical advice for at-home care. They make it as pleasant as a trip to the...

I enquired about a chipped tooth issue and was seen within 24 hours of making the enquiry. Treatment options were clearly explained and discussed, in what is a very professional setting just off Shad Thames. I appreciate the fact that costs were also discussed before making the appointment, which meant that there were no surprises on the day. Overall, very...

After years of not going to the dentist, I was dreading my visit. Very welcoming practice. Dr Li kept me informed of my treatment plan and explained clearly what was needed and why. Very reassuring and professional. I've never had to wait for my appointments as well, which is very appreciated on a tight schedule.

I visited Londent and had an initial consultation with Dr Panayiotis Kaimakamis (Periodontist). What an absolute dream he was from start to finish. I was quite anxious regarding some rather complex periodontal surgery I needed ASAP and his customer care, subject matter expertise and surgical skills in my humble opinion remain unmatched. I recommend both this clinic and Dr Pano...
