NHS Scotland ChildSmile practice

As a Childsmile Practice, our aim at Discovery Dental Care is to help improve the oral health of children in Scotland. From six months old, appointments can be made for your child to attend on a regular basis.

We will tailor any treatments to meet the needs of your child. This may include:

  • Oral health advice (e.g. on healthy weaning, diet, teething and toothbrushing instruction)

  • Annual dental check-ups and treatment, if required

  • Twice-yearly fluoride varnish applications from two years old.

Extended Duty Dental Nurses (EDDNs) from Childsmile practices are trained in oral health promotion and fluoride varnish application to support the dental team to provide Childsmile care. All this is designed to help your child’s chances of having excellent dental care.
