I came across a pretty shocking article the other day and I just had to share it with you.
A poll, surveying 2,000 families estimates that one million children in the UK don’t visit the dentist until at least the age of eight.
As the debate rages over ‘sugar tax’ and the amount of fizzy drinks that children are consuming, it has never been more important to ensure that, from a young age, your children are being given the proper dental treatment, and I’ve got to be honest, these statistics worry me a lot.

At Brightside Dental, we’re massively dedicated to improving children’s oral hygiene, for the simple reason that we know how much happier and content children are when their mouths are in good order; so I’ll admit that we were all a bit upset by these statistics.
If your child hasn’t been for a checkup recently, I urge you, get it rectified, sooner rather than later, with the school holidays being the perfect time for it.
