Dentist are being encouraged to remind parents that dental check-ups for children are free in England. The recommendation is to get all children to visit a dentist before their first birthday.

The Chief Dental Officer for England has endorsed the British Society of Paediatric Dentistry’s campaign #DCby1 (Dental Check by One), to encourage all babies to have their first dental check-up before their first birthday.

Figures released by the end of 2017 show that tooth decay is the most common reason for children between the ages of five and nine being admitted to hospital.
