The Dentistry@Markethill team will take the time to listen to children and explain in simple terms the types of things they can expect during their visit. We welcome any and all questions and we’ll teach them basic dental care in a relaxed, friendly and fun way to encourage a lifetime of healthy habits.
That’s why we feel it’s important to take your child for their first dental appointment as soon as their first teeth start to appear.
This will allow your child to get used to visiting the dentist and gives us the opportunity to stop any potential issues before they become more serious.
When the time is right, our children’s care team will show them the best way to brush their teeth and create a preventative treatment programme using state-of-the-art techniques for a healthy and growing smile. We also offer fluoride applications and fissure (tooth coloured) sealants to prevent decay if necessary.
Our aim is for children to grow up with great teeth and enjoy a lifetime of happy and healthy smiles!

If you’re a parent you may be wondering if, or at what age, your child may need braces.
Although many people think braces are for teenagers, children as young as seven can benefit from having their teeth checked by a skilled orthodontist.
Some of the issues our orthodontist will look for are baby teeth that have fallen out too early, too late or not at all, adult teeth that are too crowded, the effects of any thumb sucking habits, protruding teeth and a misaligned bite.
The friendly Dentistry@Markethill team are skilled in creating strong, wonderful smiles for anyone at any age!
