Your child’s first dental visit is an important milestone in their oral health journey. It’s crucial that this visit does not instil a sense of fear in them that can be detrimental to their dental health for a long time. We make sure dental care for children is fun to ensure they keep returning to maintain their oral health for the rest of their lives. 


What age should my child first come to the dentist?

One of the major reasons for poor dental health is not attending regular dental check-ups – and this is often due to dental phobia that, for many, started in childhood.

We recommend that your child comes to the dentist from age one, or when their first tooth appears. The key to providing your child with a lifetime of excellent dental health is to get them used to us looking inside their mouth and not being afraid that we are doing so. Kids’ dentistry is about encouraging them to be curious about their surroundings—there are certainly lots of interesting gadgets to occupy small minds. And even the dental chair that moves up and down is a source of fun. 



We are passionate about kids’ dentistry and provide a fun atmosphere with toys and games to keep your child entertained and meet the oral health needs of children in a carefree atmosphere. 


Children’s Dentistry Treatments

So, what type of dental care can you expect for your children? It depends on what age you bring them, and whether there are any problems. Our children’s dental care doesn’t necessarily involve treatments in the traditional sense but may be educational, for example, brushing techniques. 


Preventive Dentistry

Preventive dentistry is a mantra of modern dental care for children and is concerned with preventing oral health problems. By teaching kids good dental care habits and how to look after their teeth properly, we can help them avoid cavities, gum disease, and other dental problems down the road. For kids, preventive measures help to prevent dental problems in the future—and minimise the time they spend in the treatment chair. 


  • Brushing Tips

We offer a range of brushing tips for effectively cleaning your children’s teeth, from babies and toddlers to pre-schoolers and teenagers- in fact, whatever their age. For babies and toddlers, placing them on your knee is a good way of brushing their teeth, whereas, for older kids, an electric toothbrush they’ve chosen themselves can keep their dental health in check. 


  • Regular Check-Ups kids oral health needs woden

When kids eat sugary foods and drinks, the sugar can cling to their teeth and contribute to the formation of cavities. However, regular check-ups and cleanings are an essential part of routine dental care to maintain your child’s dental health. 

Check-ups can also help identify other problems with your child’s dental care. If your child has a tooth that is decayed or damaged, we can spot it and make treatment recommendations. Similarly, we can identify any issues with how your child’s teeth are growing, such as crowding or misalignment and initiate the right course of treatment to correct the problem.


The Bottom Line

Our kids’ dentistry services ensure your child’s oral health is in the best hands. Schedule an appointment with us or call us on (02) 6188 7293 to find out more about dental care for children.
