Children's Dentist In Surrey Quays

Help set your child up with good oral health habits for life with the support of our children’s dentistry team. We can help keep your child’s oral health on track, encouraging them to brush their teeth and make smart choices at home. We also provide preventative treatments to keep their teeth healthy, and provide orthodontics for teens.

Safeguard your child’s oral health with the advice and support of our children’s dentistry team. We offer NHS and private dental care for children and teenagers. 

Finding the right dentist for your child doesn't have to be complicated. We offer flexible care for toddlers, children and teenagers, so you can get customised support at every stage in their development.

Children have unique dental requirements at different stages in their lives. We can help your child feel confident in the dentist's chair by offering a supportive and encouraging environment when they are younger. They will learn that the dentist is on their side, and not someone to fear. By working with parents, we can create a supportive environment where we encourage children to develop positive oral health habits.

These are just some of the ways we can support your child:

  • Encourage them to feel confident at the dentist.
  • Monitor teeth for early signs of decay.
  • Teach them how to care for their own teeth.
  • Advise parents on good oral health habits.
  • Offer tips for issues like thumb sucking.
  • Monitor the emergence of their adult teeth.
  • Carry out orthodontic treatment, if required.

Frequently asked questions

Learn more about your treatment. We’ve answered the most common patient questions below.

If your child has a phobia of the dentist, we can take extra steps to help put them at ease. This could mean starting the consult in the waiting area so they feel less intimidated by the dentist's chair. We will do everything we can to make a dental checkup fun for your child so they know there is nothing to be afraid of.

Yes, NHS dentistry is available for free for children. If you choose private treatments for your child, such as Invisalign, you will have to pay for this privately.

If you are looking for NHS braces, then we will need to assess your child and determine if braces are clinically required. For private treatment, there are no requirements and you can get started straight away without joining any waiting lists. 

We typically recommend your child starts to visit the dentist when their first milk teeth emerge. This may seem very young, but it's helpful to encourage children to feel relaxed and at ease at the dentist so they don't develop a phobia later in life.

  • Excellent Practice. Excellent doctors. Had an appointment with Mr Reuben. I'm terrified of being in the dentist's chair but he's one of the best at his work! Made me very comfortable. Also shout out to the practice manager, she really goes above and beyond for the patients and the practice itself.

  • Couldn't express enough gratitude towards the team here. I needed a safe pair of hands with my #8 Incisor, plus the heavy-woes close behind my dilemma. Dialling in to SDDP, I was received by Djoan, who was attentive and patient with my anxiety. She really was altruistic over the phone and put me at ease right away. Getting an appointment is never easy in the land of today but I felt reassured I was made a priority as best she could. Representing is Djoan and also Roshni, whom was totally ahead of the game and had forseen an appropriate approach to my following visits necessary to regain as much of my Hollywood E-lister smile as possible.Dr Safari answered my doubts with professionalism, great knowledge and clarity. Rebooking before leaving was painless as Djoan and Roshni had effortlessly lined up my appointment options so I only had to mutter, "that one". With Ivana managing, perpetual assurance is imminent.
