Childsmile is a national programme designed to improve the oral health of children in Scotland and reduce inequalities both in dental health and access to dental services.
Scientific studies from around the world have shown that fluoride varnish gives added protection to teeth against tooth decay, when used in addition to daily tooth brushing with fluoride toothpaste.
At childsmile clinics for children aged between 2-5 years a fluoride varnish is painted on to children's teeth using a soft brush. The varnish sets quickly and has a pleasant taste and a fruity smell.
Along with the fluoride varnish applications oral hygiene instruction and dietry advise is given .
Clinics are available on Friday afternoons with Becky.
Please contact the practice for availability.
