My kids love coming to the dentist, unlike me and my husband when we were kids! But I have to say it’s amazing how friendly the dentists and the whole dental team are at Smile Essential dental clinic.

Educating Leicester children for better dental health…

leicester dental clinic, helping the leicester community

It’s well publicised that Leicester has the highest dental decay rate of children in England. So we at Smile Essential dental practice take part in various activities across Leicester to help educate youngsters on the importance of good oral care. Our recent trip out in the community was to help educate young children aged around 7 in better dental care.

Smile Essential dental practice in Leicester is well accustomed to educate young children in oral health, increasing their awareness about oral health and the importance of brushing and limiting sugary foods/drinks.

Figures on children’s dental health in Leicester show that five year old children living in Leicester have the highest experience of dental decay observed in England. The latest figures show an increase in the proportion of children with dental decay to 53.2%- a shocking figure.

There is a strategy in place in Leicester with the NHS and Leicester City Council. The aim of the strategy is to support coordinated activity across Leicester City to improve oral health, reduce oral health inequalities and lay solid foundations for good oral health throughout life.

Their objectives are:

• Optimising exposure to fluoride
• Gain multi-partnership support in order for everyone to play a role in improving oral health
• Improve preventive and routine dental attendance
• Improve parental skills on caring for children’s oral health

How you can help?

• Ensure that your child brushes 2x a day with a fluoride toothpaste
• Limit or eliminate the amount of sugary foods and drinks your child consumes
• Regularly attend for your dental care and treatment/prevention appointments
• Improve your child’s understanding of the importance of having healthy teeth and gums.

leicester dental practice patient reviews

I have always been scared of the dentist since I was a child and had a bad tooth extraction. I didn’t go for years. My friend recommended me to Smile Essential dental practice and I have to say they have been incredible.

They were all so kind and so patient with me as I was so nervous. I would highly recommend them to anyone that is nervous of the dentist.
