The community of Martock is about to receive a valuable addition to its healthcare landscape, Jayne Owen – an experienced, skilled, and compassionate paediatric dentist joining the team at Martock Dental Practice. This new addition is not just a mere recruitment but a significant step towards ensuring the oral health and well-being of the youngest members of our community.
Do you need a specialist paediatric dentist?
Children have unique dental needs that often differ from those of adults. Their developing teeth require special care and attention to ensure they grow properly and remain healthy. A paediatric dentist has expertise in treating infants, children, and adolescents, providing them with the best possible oral care during these crucial years.
Jayne qualified in 1989 from Victoria University, Manchester and later achieved specialist status in 2000 after completing MFDS, RCS (Glas) in Paediatric Dentistry. With over 30 years of experience, she has worked as a senior dental officer covering various Community Dental settings. She enjoys treating emotional, physical, and medical special needs children, referred by other team members and local dental practitioners under sedation too.
Bringing specialised paediatric dental services to the local area of Martock
Adding a paediatric dentist to Martock Dental Practice brings a range of specialised services that cater specifically to children. These services include:
- Early Dental Care: The paediatric dentist will focus on early prevention and education. Educating parents and caregivers about proper oral hygiene practices and dietary choices plays a pivotal role in setting the foundation for a lifetime of good oral health.
- Behaviour Management: Children can sometimes feel anxious about visiting the dentist. Paediatric dentists are specially trained to create a friendly and welcoming environment, easing children’s fears and making their dental visits a positive experience.
- Growth and Development Monitoring: As children’s teeth and jaws are still growing and changing, a paediatric dentist can monitor their dental development closely. This can help in early identification and address any issues early on, preventing potential complications in the future.
- Specialised Treatments: From cavity fillings, placing stainless crowns and dental sealants to managing orthodontic concerns, a paediatric dentist possesses the skills to provide age-appropriate treatments tailored to each child’s unique needs.
