Finding a family dentist in Stourbridge or elsewhere, especially one that’s also a cosmetic dentist, is often far more stressful than it needs to be. Is the practice child-friendly? Will the clinic happily treat children? What will other patients think if your children play up in the waiting room?
As most of our team are parents, we know that there’s nothing worse than worrying about whether your children are welcome in the waiting room, especially if they’re feeling a bit teary or in high spirits.
Here at Lion Dental Centre in Stourbridge, we don’t think that being a family dentist or cosmetic dentist should be mutually exclusive. In fact, we want everyone in your family, from the young to the old, to feel welcome and that we care, whatever treatment they need. We don’t mind chatter in the waiting room – our youngest patients keep us all smiling (and on our toes!).
We think good dental care starts even before your child has teeth. Just the experience of coming along to the practice and sitting on your knee or watching from their pushchair during your dental exam can help your children view dental check-ups as an essential part of their own self-care. This is great news for their future oral health.
Yes, we are a cosmetic dentist and offer many adult-focused treatments, such as tooth whitening, veneers and orthodontics, but get your children looking after their teeth now and they may not need a cosmetic dentist further down the line.
If you choose us as your Stourbridge family dentist, we’ll always offer your children a warm welcome and get them gradually used to sitting in the dentist’s chair for their check-up. Because we see so many young patients, we’re great at explaining why we all need to look after our teeth and how to brush properly. Your child will love being awarded a sticker and balloon at the end of their check-up.
If you’re a patient here at Lion Dental Centre in Stourbridge, we will treat your under-fives free of charge. We also have a fantastic membership plan to make our family dental services even more affordable.
