Why is Paediatric Dentistry important?

We believe in a preventative approach to dentistry, which begins as soon as your child's teeth start coming through.

You should brush the teeth of your baby or young child until they are able to clean their teeth for themselves. This is to build up good habits from an early age and get them used to coming to the dentist on a regular basis.


Bringing your children to the dentist from an early age has a number of benefits:

  • It will get them used to the clinical environment and make them feel comfortable and less anxious about the dentist as they grow older.
  • It helps introduce dental health habits from an early age.
  • Helps parents with diet advice to help best protect their children's teeth.
  • Prevents any problems with teeth and gums in the future by explaining the importance of regular dental check ups.

Always have a positive experience, from reception staff, hygienist, dentist. After seven years of using Stella Maris I would never go anywhere else, thoroughly recommend paying them a visit.

I've been a regular dental patient at Stella Maris Dental practice for the past 3 years, and it's been the best experience ever. In terms of treatment plan, customers services, care and professional nursing staff and top quality treatments by the most experienced and qualified dental practitioners. What I like the most about Stella Maris is the feeling of being part of a "family practice", which comes from their attention to details, care centred around the patient well being and satisfaction throughout the entire treatment period. I strongly recommend Stella Maris practice for anyone looking to brighten their smile. P.S. Special thanks to Mr Namih, Hygienist and caring nursing staff.

Have been going to Stella Maris now for over 5 years. Can honestly say they have all looked after me since I first started going. Dr Namih has been amazing doing all of my treatments. He has always made sure that I’m comfortable and never in any discomfort. I’m so grateful I get to smile feeling confident and that’s all down to his work. I was so scared of dentists after my first experience elsewhere & now I will never go anywhere else. You are all like family & I’m lucky to have found somewhere that treats my dental health so well!

I have just completed a 19 week course of Invisalign for straightening of upper and lower teeth. Plus whitening and composite bonding to three teeth that were chipped. I feel that Hema gave a fabulous service, she demonstrated professionalism, integrity and perfectionism throughout my treatment. I have been delighted with the results and have recommended to family and friends who are interested in having their teeth improved. Sarah and the reception team are extremely helpful and personable. It is always a pleasure to go to Stella Maris Dental for their care and service.

For several years, I had been embarrassed and self-conscious about my teeth. I had lost several teeth over the years and those left were badly discoloured. I am of a generation when dentists would fill your teeth for no reason or take them out. I was always self-conscious when talking to people about how unsightly my teeth looked. Well not any more I have the biggest smile in the world thanks to Dr Namhi and his fabulous team. Stella Martis came recommended by a friend of a friend and the rest is history. I have had the works, fillings, crowns, veneers, and implants over the last 18 months. I can honestly say the difference it has made to my confidence and wellbeing is incredible. Having the initial consultation with Dr Namhi, he took his time to explain what was involved, putting a plan together, prioritising what needed to be done first. I am glad to say that treatment was relatively painless, how he administers an injection without causing pain is fabulous. Every step of the way Dr Namhi continued to explain fully the treatment for that visit and what the following appointment would entail. I would always receive a call the following morning to make sure you are alright after treatment and if I had any problems to call them. All staff are so friendly, courteous and welcoming. It is always a pleasure to visit the surgery, it is like visiting family. I would highly recommend Stella Martis Practice to anybody who is looking for a dentist. My sincere thanks has got to go to the dental nurses, receptionists, hygienist, but I have to say my personal thanks has got to be to Dr Namhi himself who has transformed my life totally, his patience, precision, expertise, skill, and friendliness is showing in my smile every day.

0 - 5 years old (Free examination)

As soon as your child’s baby teeth start coming through or before their first birthday, it’s time to introduce them to the idea of brushing their teeth and having annual dental check ups.

During their first appointment and beyond, we will ensure your child is as comfortable as possible. They are welcome to sit wherever they are most at ease. If they don’t open their mouth the first couple of visits, then that’s okay. It is beneficial simply to get them used to being in a clinical environment with the bright lights and masks.


6 - 11 years old (£9 per examination)

This is the age where your child's adult teeth will be starting to come through. Gum disease in children is growing increasingly common, so the quicker it is treated the better.

It’s also an important time for us to start evaluating how their teeth are developing and whether we need to start planning for any orthodontics in the future.

All our health treatments are half the price of an adult. So if your child were to need a filling, it would cost £50.25 instead of £100.50.


12 - 18 years old (£15 per examination)

As your child grows up, it is important that they begin to take responsibility for their own oral health.

With more freedom to eat what they like and later bedtimes, educating your children and supporting them to make healthy choices can give you more confidence they are maintaining their oral health. Our dental team can also start showing how to clean between teeth with a floss.

If your child plays contact sports, it might be ideal to get a mouthguard to protect their teeth against dental trauma.

Child Orthodontics

We offer traditional fixed ‘train track’ braces for children with overcrowding, protrusion or overlapping of the teeth. These can be either metal or tooth-coloured for more discretion, as we know a lot of teenagers can feel self conscious about having braces.

Having aligned teeth can help improve speech, chewing, confidence and overall health. Our cases are referred to Dr. Ashley Davenport. Ashley qualified as a dentist in 1995 and most people who know him well know that dentistry is a passion for him. He has been associated with Stella Maris Dental for over 20 years now and is an expert in his field.
