Children’s Dentistry

At Banstead Dental Care we promote preventive dentistry starting as soon as your child’s teeth begin to appear which can be from as early as 4 months to as late as 18 months.

Teaching your child good oral hygiene at a young age is an investment in their health that will stay with them for life. It can be useful to set a good example by taking care of your own teeth and by having regular dental check-ups.

We offer reduced private fees for children, and also see them under the NHS.

For your child’s first visit, it is best for Mum/Dad to explain beforehand that during this examination all we will do is count the child’s teeth, and to avoid using emotive phrases such as “it won’t hurt” to describe what we do.

During each dental examination, we will speak with the parents and the child together and offer dietary advice (and analysis if the parent wishes), and suggest an age appropriate oral hygiene regime.

Occasionally, we might have to refer your child to a specialist children’s dentist-called a Paedodontist, if their treatment requirements necessitates this, and we generally refer all paediatric alignment problems to an Orthodontist.

Our Dentists and Hygienists can teach you about helping your children look after their teeth, brushing techniques, diet advice and much more.

To help your children protect their teeth and gums and reduce their risk of getting cavities, teach them to follow these steps:

  1. Brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to remove plaque-the sticky film on teeth that’s the main cause of tooth decay.

  2. Eat a well-balanced diet that limits starchy or sugary foods, which produce plaque acids that cause tooth decay. When you do eat these foods, try to eat them with your meal instead of as a snack as this limits the time the teeth are exposed to acids produced by plaque bacteria.

  3. Take your child to our dentist for regular check-ups.

Desperate with tooth ache during the COVID-19 Pandemic with no ressponse from my regular dentist, I visited this surgery. From the beginning, a 5 star service. Required a Root Canal Treatment which Jonathan Lee did, he was excellent as I was very nervous. It was a fabulous result which was finished by a superb fitting of a crown by Marc Clery. The level of communication, reassurance and kindness with excellent professionalism from the whole practice made me feel so reassured, I have moved to this practice! Thank you Marc & Rakhi.

Highly recommend this surgery if, like me, you are nervous or scared of visiting the dentist. They explain fully what will happen and never rush the treatment, being really patient and kind despite my anxiety. I now book up to go regularly, where before I avoided going until I had a problem because I know that I will be treated with respect and understanding over my fears, which makes the whole process bearable. It’s a very professional service too, where you get reminders about your appointments and friendly, helpful reception ladies. If you’re feeling anxious, just tell them because they really will look after you!

Fantastic communication and unrivalled care and attention from all of the staff at Banstead Dental Care. I have undergone numerous treatments in the past 6 months with Rakhi and feel completely at home. I no longer need to say "I hate the dentist"! 100% recommended.

My son's and I were patients at another private practice for 15 years until our circumstances changed. I was extremely nervous about the change but was recommended to this practice and took the plunge with both of my sons in tow, one of whom has regular check ups while his braces are in place and after care arranged for when they are removed.. Marcus has been brilliant. His manner is reassuring, informative and thorough. The dental nurses, reception staff and hygienists are all great. The payment plan is also a good idea. Highly recommended.
