Preparing for Your Child’s First Visit
Prepare your child for their first dental visit the same way you’re preparing them for their first haircut or a trip to a clothing store. You can use encouraging and positive words about dental visits to lessen their anxiety. We also urge you to read some children’s books about dentists as a simple way to prepare them. Your children’s reaction to their first visit to a dental clinic may surprise you.

Preventative Care for Children
At Cardiff Dental, we emphasise the importance of prevention to all of our patients. We offer different preventative treatments such as dental sealants. We only use high-quality sealant material to protect your child’s delicate teeth.
A dental sealant is a thin plastic coating applied to the chewing surfaces of the teeth to prevent decay. This is one of the many treatments that will set the foundation for your children’s’ lifetime of good oral health.
