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.

After years of not being able to eat solid food, because of bad decay and alot of tooth discomfort, i decide to go and have a consultation on having implant retained dentures. How professional all the staff were, and after having my remaining teeth removed and 4 implants in the top and 2 in the bottom, i can now eat properly and i am pain free. The photo,s speak for themselves.. The best money i have ever spent. Highly recommend stella maris dental

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.
