Start Your Child’s Oral Health Journey Today
We offer Child Smile appointments for our young patients. If you are seeking to enrol your child with one of our dentists, we are currently accepting new patients.
If your child requires orthodontic treatment for teeth straightening, we can refer them to an orthodontist.
Eligibility for NHS orthodontic treatment varies for children, with some qualifying for coverage while others may incur costs. The orthodontist will offer recommendations on available treatment options after evaluating your child’s teeth.
At EnVisage Dentistry Cumbernauld, we participate in the Child Smile programme. Child Smile is a national programme designed to improve the oral health of children in Scotland.
Our dental team will offer guidance and assistance on preventing future tooth decay for your child, ensuring their oral health is effectively managed.
We can provide information on caring for your child’s teeth, instruct your child on proper tooth brushing techniques, offer advice on weaning and diet, and conduct regular check-ups to ensure healthy teeth and gums.
