Family Health

Developing good oral health, for life.

Getting children of any age to brush their teeth is tricky, but we have everything in place to make it easier. Our children’s membership plan is £6 per month for those aged 4-17, and free for under 4s.

We are happy to see children from their very first tooth, so we can help you establish a good routine and technique from the start. We have a dedicated children’s area in reception, accessible facilities, flexible appointment times, and provide helpful hints and tips during your visit. All our dentists are chatty, reassuring and take great care of children.

Both in the practice and visiting local schools, our Children’s Coordinator, Lauren Thompson educates children (and parents) on the importance of good brushing and healthy teeth.

Services for families and children:

  • Regular dental health reviews
  • Fluoride application
  • Oral health education
  • Tooth coloured fillings
  • Referral to orthodontics
  • Mouth guards for sport
  • Stickers as standard
dental health reviews

Regular dental health reviews

We know it’s not always easy to schedule appointments around school and work, which is why we offer flexible appointment times that fit around you. We’ll help you keep on top of your family’s regular dental care.

fluoride application

Fluoride application

Did you know there is no fluoride in the Yorkshire water supply? Even children who brush their teeth regularly don’t always do a great job. So it’s good to have a little extra protection when you need it. Fluoride varnish, a special gel applied to children’s teeth, is highly effective at reducing decay. We visit local schools to provide dental assessments and offer twice-yearly fluoride varnish applications, to support all the effort you put in at home.

oral health education

Oral health education

Every child should have the chance of strong, healthy teeth and we’re here to help families achieve that on Finkle Hill. As part of our work both in the practice and in the wider local community, we provide Oral Health Education sessions. These show children how different foods affect their teeth, discover the hidden plaque on their teeth and learn the best way to brush to avoid future problems. We also work with providers of care to older people too.

Mouth Guards

Mouth guards

Mouth guards are devices worn over your teeth to protect them from injury. Finkle Hill Dental provides custom-made mouth guards for sports such as rugby and hockey and conditions such as sleep apnoea, snoring and teeth grinding.

There are many different types of mouth guards; you can buy some in sports shops or chemists, or you can purchase a bespoke mouth guard from your dentist. Bespoke mouth guards are custom-made to fit your mouth and teeth perfectly, so they offer the best possible comfort and protection. They’re made of stronger materials and usually last longer than over-the-counter varieties. We take a quick, digital scan of your mouth, send the design to our lab and have your guard back to you within a week or so.

I recently had treatment for composite bonding, which involved removing and refitting a permanent retainer that I had on my teeth prior to this.... Claire was absolutely amazing!! Throughout every appointment she was extremely comforting and made sure I was always okay and understood what was going. Most of all, Claire’s attention to detail was brilliant, she really went above and beyond with every detail and did an amazing job on my teeth. Cannot recommend Claire and Finkle Hill enough!read more

As a patient who is very scared of the dentist, Claire has worked hard to support me and ensure I feel comfortable during every visit. I've had all... sorts of treatments over the past year and although I've felt nervous, Claire & the team have done everything possible to make me feel as comfortable as possible. The treatment and care I have received has been second to more

Referred to Matthew Gahan at Finkle Hill for a particularly tricky root canal treatment of a long, twisted molar root. I'm a bit of a nervous patient... especially where needles are concerned, but right from walking in the door, all of the Finkle Hill team I encountered were friendly and positive. While root canal work is never going to be the happiest time of your life, Matthew and his dental nurse were both superbly calming and reassuring, from introductions and an initial chat about the work needed, helping me through the anaesthetics process, and then keeping me informed about what they were doing and checking I was comfortable through the full two hours of treatment. I felt very well looked after, and while that sort of intensive dental work is never going to be 'pleasant', Matthew and team made it as easy and painless - physically and emotionally - as it possibly could more

I’m so grateful for the Finkle hill team especially Dr Matthew Gahan. I’ve been to other dentists before and they don’t compare. I was super nervous... and scared before my treatment but Matt and the dental nurse made me feel safe and taken care of. He explained everything well and is very kind.Thank you Matt & the more
