Your Baby

Being the parent of a new baby is both an enjoyable and rewarding time. It is vital that we as parents are aware of the importance of our childrens’ teeth and how to care for them, even before they put in an appearance.

  • All our children are born free of dental diseases.
  • We know the causes of tooth decay and gum disease.
  • We know how to prevent it.

We wish to share this basic information with you so that between us we can ensure that your child keeps a healthy mouth and happy smile for life.

Remember we’re here to help!

Babies’ Mouths

It is a good idea to clean your baby’s gums regularly – this removes any milk that might still be there and also gets them used to having their mouths cleaned. To do this you can use a soft clean piece of cloth or a cotton bud.

Reducing the bacteria in your babies mouth may help in reducing teething pain.

When the first tooth does appear you can use a small soft bristled brush designed especially for babies.


Try to avoid the use of a dummy, or at the very least reduce their use to as little as possible.

Long term dummy use or thumb sucking habits are the main cause of under developed jaw bones and crooked teeth.

COVID-19 Information

Hello to everyone, we trust that you are safe and well.

All of us at Churchfield Dental Centre would like to thank you all for your support through these very unusual times.

With the recent move to Tier 3 restrictions we want to let you know that the Practice will remain open throughout this period and continue to provide our usual services.

As you all know the Practice is fully operational and we have rigorous Covid safeguarding procedures in place for all our patients and staff, ensuring that you are all entering a safe environment when attending for your dental care.

We would like to give a few additional reminders:

·       Please complete your emailed Covid forms prior to attending your appointment (this form is sent prior to every appointment).

·       Please arrive at the clinic at your appointment time or if you are too early and you've travelled by car, please wait in your car, this will avoid minimal people contact at clinic reception.
