Mrs Wendy Summerill, Dental Therapist, is consulting at Fresh Dental Care – Macksville, to specifically meet the needs of the younger members in our community. Wendy’s name and face will be familiar to a lot of local families as not only is she local but she has already cared for many of their children through the Coffs Harbour Community Dental Clinic, based at the Coffs Harbour Health Campus. Wendy has over 35 years experience as a therapist and exclusively sees children from preschool age and earlier, up to 18 year old school leavers.
Wendy also emphasises the importance of a custom fitted mouthguard for children who play sport. Compared with the cost of extensive dental treatment and emotional trauma caused by damage to permanent teeth, the cost of a custom-made mouthguard is a small price to pay.
