Family dentistry

Forestside Dental in Southampton is a thriving practice that grows by word of mouth and we are proud to watch our younger patients grow up and bring their families to see us. Our door is always open to new patients from across Dibden Purlieu, Fawley, Hythe, Blackfield, Holbury and Southampton and we look forward to meeting you and your family soon.
 
We enjoy treating children and watching them grow up with beautiful, confident smiles. As parents ourselves, we understand your dental concerns. We are happy to see children on the NHS and book family appointments for your convenience. We have toys and colouring books in our waiting lounge to keep little ones entertained.

Your first appointment

Your first appointment will last around 30 minutes and provides a thorough review of your dental wellbeing. You will be asked to fill in a medical history form and your dentist will ask about your general health as this can affect the condition of your teeth and gums, and any medication you may require during treatment. This initial examination will also include our 11-point dental health examination and an oral cancer screening for added peace of mind.
 

Nervous patients

We especially welcome nervous children and adults and enjoy a great sense of satisfaction when they become more relaxed and comfortable. We offer a personal service to all our patients with whom we build lasting relationships based on trust and respect. Please let us know if you are an anxious patient and we will arrange for you to pop in and have a look around, meet our team and get a feel for our practice.
