We want your child to have a positive experience. We like to start with the simple things on their first visit, which is why it is so important to bring your children to the dentist for a routine check-up before any problems may arise. Initial appointments are spent building a relationship with the child; and familiarising them with dentistry in a fun and playful manner. They’ll even get to use the controls and go for a ride in the chair! We also have a special treasure chest for the children to pick a present out of at the end of treatment.
To assist in a lifetime of healthy smiles, it’s paramount to introduce your children to professional dental care from an early age. The Australian Dental Association (ADA) recommends you begin making dental appointments when the first baby tooth becomes visible or your child reaches the age of one. Regular check-ups from this age will help them to feel comfortable in the dental chair and create a friendly relationship with the dentist and dental assistant.
