Tips for Parents

As soon as your child’s first tooth appears, take them to the dentist to familiarise them with the environment so the dentist can make sure their mouth is in good health. Usually, this will happen by their first birthday.

PATIENT JOURNEY

 

1
 Icon

We recommend families come in and bring children in prior to their appointment for a practice tour. It helps ease any nerves dental-phobic children may have and allows our Dentist to start building rapport and trust with your child. We then will kindly ask you to fill in “A note to your Dentist”, a brief form that helps assess how nervous your child is and allows us to prepare for his/her appointment ahead of time as best we can.

When you arrive at Olive Tree, you’ll understand why we break away from the traditional dental setting; the colours of the practice are warm & inviting. You will never see our Dentists or team hushing your children and have fun dental props on hand, including some fun crosswords and activity sheets to keep them occupied whilst in the waiting lounge.

3
 Icon

Your child will never feel rushed, and neither will you; we provide a bespoke treatment plan for every patient, big or small! We will also ease the child into the dental chair with props and have a conversation that’s about anything they enjoy talking about before carefully explaining what is about to happen at each stage of the appointment/treatment.

4
 Icon

The dentist will speak to your child in a language they understand, we won’t give them any heavy dental jargon that’s confusing, and we will always try to be as honest as possible and make them feel like they are as much as part of the decision-making process as you are as a parent. We recommend positive reinforcement and gentle persuasion at times (who doesn’t want frozen yoghurt or sugar-free ice cream after they’ve been super brave!).

5
 Icon

Your child’s exam will be comprehensive, especially since it’s their first visit; we will not only examine their teeth and take X-Rays but also photos using an intra-oral camera and discuss preventative hygiene and tips for both children and parents to get the most out of the visit and to ensure a lifetime of happy, healthy teeth.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I attend the appointment with my child?

Yes, absolutely; we want you both to be as comfortable as possible with your child’s patient journey at Olive Tree. Whilst the Dentist examines your teeth thoroughly, children (depending on their age) can sit on their parent's lap or in the dental chair.

What does the child exam involve exactly?

The Dentist will assess eruption patterns and look for signs of plaque or bacteria/cavity development. The dentist will also assess the overall oral health & hygiene and demonstrate how best to brush your teeth, offering advice on the right toothbrushes to use and which toothpaste; and for infants, we’ll advise on when and how to care for those first baby teeth. The appointment may also include overall discussions about general health and how certain medical conditions can connect with oral health, and what to look out for.

Do you have any child membership plans?

Yes, we have several affordable membership plans. For children 10 years or older, we offer the mini picholine membership plan. For more information,click here.

What are your fees for children?

For more information please visit our Children’s Fees.

Can the dentist help me if my child has developed bad habits?

Absolutely the Dentist will tailor the advise to suit your child’s needs if you can’t get them to stop using a dummy/pacifier and this is affecting their teeth in any way. If they are grinding their teeth constantly and this could cause further issues, the Dentist will discuss preventative measures to ensure this is dealt with as quickly as possible before it creates any long-term issues later.

My child may need braces or Invisalign do you offer both?

Yes, we do, and depending on the level of crowding or alignment required, the Orthodontist will carry out a comprehensive assessment to decide which is the better option. For some children, early intervention is required. For others, the Orthodontist may recommend you wait until your child’s baby teeth have all fallen out and adult teeth have replaced them before making any decisions. This is decided on a case-by-case basis. If you are considering orthodontic treatment for yourself, we will kindly request that you attend a separate consultation at a mutually convenient appointment time.

My children play sport how can I help protect their teeth?

The Dentist may discuss various options, including a sports guard, especially if your child plays any contact sports such as Rugby. Prevention at this stage is key, so please do let your Dentist know if your child does play competitively.

I have been going to olive tree dental now, for about a year and a half. The service is always so friendly and they really help you make the best decision when it comes to your teeth. I have had Invisalign treatment with Patricia, which was exceptional.The regular hygienist appointments and general check ups are also very good, and the parking around the dentist is excellent. I would highly recommend going here.read more

From the first step through the door it felt far removed from the standard clinical feel of any dentist I had been to previously. Not only are the offices beautifully decorated and the staff welcoming and friendly but the resulting impression from my first appointment was one of confidence instead of fear. Dr Zyada was very thorough in her checks and took the time to go through each and every tooth to explain exactly what needed to be done and why. It makes the return appointment a lot less daunting, thank you. Would definitely recommend Olive Tree Dental.read more

The team at Olive Tree Dental are great! My dentist was very thorough and took the time to patiently explain her findings and what would be required for future visits. Like most people I don't enjoy going to the dentist, but the team made it as comfortable as possible. The rooms were really clean too!read more

Discovered this place during Covid after a having dental emergency, was able to get an appointment very quickly, its very easy to get to and never had a problem finding a space in the free parking right next to it. All the staff are very friendly and the dentist goes the extra mile to sort out your dental problems. Being a new practise, The equipment and technology is very up to date and the surroundings are very smart, clean and put you at ease. Would highly recommend.read more

Olive Tree Dental are a fantastic dental practice. All of their staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I was given an appointment here with Smile White UK teeth whitening and the dentist was lovely! She was great at advising me in detail how to use the teeth whitening for my teeth, as they are particularly sensitive. I would definitely recommend them.read more

I went to Olive Tree Dental Clinic few times for teeth cleaning, emergency dental work and consultations. The clinic was very clean and inviting, stuff was very friendly and dentist was very gentle and reassuring. I appreciated the fact that she was communicating with me during the procedures so I wasn’t wondering what’s going on or when it will finish. I’ve been to quite a few dental clinics previously but never felt as valued and welcomed, and never got such high quality dental service. Highly recommend it to anyone and especially to those who feel nervous and anxious when visiting dentist. I feel lucky to live nearby!read more
