Children are especially welcome and are encouraged to attend our practice on a regular basis. We aim to make their visit as enjoyable as possible – a visit to the dentist can be fun!
We make every effort to ensure children feel especially welcome and have an enjoyable experience.
We want children to love coming to the dentist and to have healthy teeth and gums as they move into adulthood. The best time to start this is when they are young. This will help them to prevent any future dental problems. Duncan Smith Dental is proud to be part of the Chilldsmile programme. This is a national programme which aims to improve the oral health of children in Scotland.
We hold regular Childsmile clinics throughout the year and our fully trained Childsmile nurses, will talk to your child about keeping their teeth and mouth in tip-top shape. Our Childsmile clinics fun and educational, with a child-friendly atmosphere.
As a part of the Childsmile programme we offer:
- oral hygiene instruction, teething and toothbrushing instruction
- advice on diet, breastfeeding and weaning
- provision of free dental packs
- regular fluoride varnish applications from 2 years to 5 years 11 months

It’s never too early to register your child with us – even before their first teeth come through. We would like your child to have a positive experience visiting Duncan Smith Dental, as this will influence the way they care about their teeth and the way they feel about going to the dentist throughout their life.
Strong teeth now, stronger forever!
