DENTAL CLINIC
Spotting the marks of decay. Lifting the lip can do this, it’s quick and easy and doesn't hurt your child. Lift the child’s top lip so you can see all the front teeth. If you see white or stained marks on any of the teeth, the child should come to see us at the Dental Clinic as soom as possible. Anne & Sarah.
