Dentists in Derby, Derbyshire 44 Main Street, Etwall, Derby, Derbyshire DE65 6LP
At Etwall Dental Practice we believe preventative dentistry begins with the eruption of your very first tooth. We strive to provide families with a relaxing, stress-free environment that helps children become accustomed to and comfortable in a dental practice.
It is vital that a professional regularly monitor your child’s mouth and dental development as they grow. We want to find and address any problems early before they become serious.
We also want to instil good dental hygiene habits and practices early to help provide a lifetime of good oral health for your child.
Yes, you should bring your child to the dentist for the first time within 6 months of their first tooth erupting.
Early dental appointments are as much about familiarising your child with the practice surroundings and all its sights, sounds, and smells, as about allowing them to get to know the dentist.
We will also teach you how to keep your child’s teeth and gums clean and healthy until they are old enough to start caring for their own oral health.
There are several ways you can enhance and maintain the condition of your child’s teeth and gums. These include:
Many of you will be aware that during the latest Covid 19 update dental practices have been given the green light to re-open the surgery from 8th June. Whilst this is good news, there are a number of procedures that we have being putting in place to make treatment safe for our patients and staff, as we are sure you will appreciate, this is taking some time to set up.
Our intention is, if at all possible to commence opening on the 8th June but this is entirely dependent on our ability to obtain training and appropriate PPE which as you know there is a great shortage of. This equipment will be essential for us to be able to operate.
From 8th- 29th of June we will be prioritising the most urgent of cases including those who have been experiencing problems during this lockdown period. We will contact you directly to arrange an appointment. This period may be extended if required.
Rest assured we are trying our utmost to source this PPE as soon as possible to enable us to extend our treatment further to include fillings, crown/bridge work, root treatments and surgical extractions, scale & polish ect.
We anticipate that it will be several weeks before we will be able to commence these more advanced procedures.
This is a rapidly changing environment which we are adapting to as quickly as we possibly can. We really appreciate your patience and understanding throughout this difficult period and look forward to welcoming you back to the practice soon.
