Free children’s dental care for every step of childhood
With dental decay becoming an increasingly common problem in children, we recommend booking your child in for a check-up after the arrival of their first tooth.. This will help your dentist to keep a close eye on their ever-changing smile as it develops through childhood.
Any child under the age of 18 is eligible for NHS dental treatment, or up until the age of 19 if they’re still in full time education.
Children can also receive orthodontic treatment on the NHS if there’s a clinical need. Your child will be assessed on the IOTN (index of orthodontic treatment need)
