At Alpha House we cater for patients of all ages and welcome children from an early age. Oral health is our number one priority and we encourage parents to bring their children for regular check-ups from the age of 12 months. This helps children get used to the environment of a dental practice and means we can ensure they have strong, healthy teeth and gums.

We are aware that visiting the dentist can be daunting for children, which is why we do all we can to make the experience as enjoyable and stress-free as possible. The members of our team have many years of experience in treating children of all ages. We aim to make appointments fun and help your child feel relaxed in the dental chair.

Dental check-ups for children

Like adults, regular dental check-ups are important for children and we recommend they be conducted every 6 months. These appointments only last 10-15 minutes but can give us the chance to check everything is okay and make sure your child's teeth are developing properly. We also look for early warning signs of cavities and other dental health problems, so that we can provide treatment in good time.

At Alpha House we actively promote preventative treatments and offer sealants and fluoride varnish to strengthen teeth and prevent decay. These treatments are simple, quick and painless, but can make a huge difference to your children's oral health.

We are also available to talk about oral hygiene and diet and will happily answer any questions you may have.

Here at Alpha House Dental Practice we treat patients from all over the country but in particular those residing in Birchington, Margate and Thanet, East Kent.
