At Sharrow Dental, we believe that prevention is better than cure, which is why we work so hard to promote this into our young generation of patients. It’s important for children to attend the Dentist as soon as their milk teeth start to appear. By having regular check-ups as soon as possible, we can ensure that any problems can be identified from an early stage and promote excellent oral health that will last well into adulthood.
Coming to the dentist can be an intimidating experience for a young child. We work extremely hard to create an environment that is friendly and relaxed for a child to have their first experiences of the dental clinic and staff. If we start out in life with a positive experience of dentistry than that relationship will hopefully stay that way throughout life, and you will retain a positive outlook with regards to teeth and oral health.
Why Should Children Visit the Dentist?
We invite children to be seen at the practice from as early as 6 months of age, around the time that they have their first teeth emerging from the gums. These early appointments will be important to familiarise kids with the nurses, dentists, smells and surroundings as well as focusing on delivering prevention messages to kids and parents/guardians regarding sugars and brushing habits. Our dentists will teach your child how to brush and care for their teeth to ensure that they carry out healthy habits from an early age.
Even when children are being seen on a regular basis by their orthodontist it is important to attend for regular check-ups.

Sorry it has taken me this long to write a review but I just want to thank Ian so much for my teeth. I had a brace put on and I was quite nervous throughout the whole procedure as I don’t feel totally comfortable whenever I go to the dentist, however Ian was always so professional and confident that I knew I was in safe hands. He is also very honest so you know what result you can achieve and what you can’t which I think is really important. I am so pleased with my teeth now the brace is off and I would 100% recommend!! thank you Ian & Sharrow.
Sharrow has been very warm and welcoming – good services all round. Mr Clough has been very meticulous in his treatment – very patient. Taking his time with everything he has done. I have recommended several people to his clinic and I hope they take my advice. Happy and comfortable with the service and my mouth is back to normal! So far so good! Thank you
Truly great dentist, it’s no accident that my family, my daughter’s husband and now his family now go there. Having had bad experiences in my early life , I’m so glad I found them and can only deduce that they only take on dentist who are a. fantastic at their job, b. very empathetic to those who have had bad experiences.
I’m a very nervous patient. I’m absolutely petrified of dentists but this one I feel so comfortable at. They are absolutely amazing with me and I’d recommend to anyone who’s also nervous this is the surgery for you. Everyone is so lovely and welcoming. Thank you so much sharrows. 10/10 x
