As a husband and wife team and with a family of three children, Glafcos and Klaudia take childrens dental health very seriously. Each child is given a thorough dental examination. For children of 5 yrs and over a hygienist appointment can be arranged if appropriate. Dental examinations for under 5’s are free of charge and young children are given motivational stickers, appropriate advice and a clean teeth certificate.
As general dentists we will carry out simple fillings and emergency treatment for children at the practice. We feel that more complex Children’s dentistry is best carried out by a Paediatric Specialist and such is our commitment to dental excellence that we are one of the few practices in West London who has a Paediatric Specialist working here. If your child requires braces or teeth straightening our Orthodontist works here on a Saturday.
