Children's Dentistry

Here at YSDC we have a lot of patients who are children and our team are very used to looking after their oral health.

We strive to ensure that every child has as positive experience with us as possible because it’s incredibly important to us that the dentist is a place that they are happy to come along to.

Our aim is to protect your children’s teeth, prevent decay and promote oral hygiene techniques that ensure your children keep their teeth for life.

We work closely with each child to help them to take care of their teeth and to develop good, long lasting habits.

We are part of the Childsmile programme – with their main aim being to improve the oral health of children in Scotland.

  • “The service and treatment we have had over the years and in recent times has been first class. I’ve had a front tooth chip fixed at (very) short notice, once before my wedding day and another time before an important work event, happy to go above and beyond for patients. Our boys even love going for their visits! It’s clear the team there understand the importance of quality service in a community such as Alford and long may it continue. Well done team Young Smile!”

  • “Can’t speak highly enough of this practice. My son now 8 had a previous bad experience with a different dentist and it really knocked him for six. He now goes to see Emma at the practice and she is absolutely amazing with him. He was in today and Emma and Lara made him at ease from the start they spoke him through the process from start to finish. He is a different child going to the dentist now thanks to the whole team at the practice. Keep up the amazing work.”

    "Keep up the amazing work."

  • “I cannot recommend the team at Young Smile enough. As well as being fantastic with my children in their routine check ups, they excelled today when one of my son’s had an accident and needed emergency treatment. They helped reassure him from the moment he arrived and made sure he left feeling comfortable and happy again. Thank you!”
