The MKD Smile Club

child-care.jpgPrevention of decay and gum disease will build the foundations of oral health for life. Register your child at an early age, along with regular visits to the practice accompanied by you as parents throughout their formative years will help to prevent dental disease. These visits build confidence allowing familiarisation with the dentist, the dental team and the environment of the practice whilst giving us the opportunity for reinforcing positive health messages and careful detailed monitoring of your child's developing mouth.
We offer a full range of up to the minute dental treatments and solutions.

Launching during National Smile month 2011, from May 15th to June 15th, children are going to be the big focus this summer. Welcoming all kids new and current we are putting in place a programme which will give our children a priority place in the practice and build their health for the future. Children may join the MKD Smile Club at their next visit. They must attend the fixed three or six monthly appointments agreed with you the parents and one parent must be a regularly attending member of the practice.
