Mission to improve Children’s Oral Health

Dentist demonstrating

We’re on a mission to improve decay rates amongst young children in the Fylde Coast by delivering key Oral Health messages to children in the local community. Our Oral Health Educators are working closely with the local schools, giving the very best information in tooth decay, how to keep our teeth and gums healthy, and discussions around healthy diets for healthy teeth. Tooth-brushing demonstrations and fun interactive games are part of the engaging programme we are delivering to age 4-5 and 8-9 year olds in the locality.

In addition to this, we are now pleased to announce we have been made an Enhanced Paediatric Practice as part of an NHS pilot to reduce hospital waiting times for children due to undergo extractions. By using the very latest in preventive techniques, we are able to prolong the life of decayed teeth, and give them the best chance of survival before the tooth fairy collects them. This is a referral only system.

These initiatives are part of the wider agenda to improve the Health and Well-being of our population.

Information for Patients

Covid-19 and Dental Services

We are committed to  protecting our staff and patients, and have adapted our existing practices to make it as Covid secure as possible.

We are still screening all patients for symptoms of Covid-19 prior to their visit, and are delighted to introduce our online patient portal, so you can access the forms we would routinely update in the comfort of your own home. This helps us reduce the number of patients in the practice and your time during face to face appointments.

Facemasks are no longer mandatory in communal areas, such as waiting rooms and receptions, but you can opt to wear one if you choose to.

We will continue to protect patients who are extremely clinically  vulnerable patients and will allow space in our waiting rooms for this.

If you have any symptoms of Covid-19 or feel unwell for any reason, please do inform a member of our team and we can adjust our procedures accordingly to protect our team and other patients.

For advice and treatment outside of our normal working hours please phone The Lancashire Dental Helpline on 0300 1234 010.

We have provided some emergency care advice for our patients to help: https://idealdentalcare.co.uk/home/during-covid-19-period-dental-emergency-advice-for-patients/
