We know that bringing your child to the dentist can be challenging. Our goal is to encourage your child in a life-long positive attitude towards dental care. This means they need to have a good time when they visit the dentist! Every trip to the dentist should be a fun and relaxed experience for every child.
We have a kind and capable team of dentists who enjoy making your child comfortable. In addition to our 'Children's Team' (pictured right) we also have a specialist Paediatric dentist - Dr Stephanie Salanitri.
Children from one years old should visit the dentist for six-monthly check-ups. We know that this may seem too much too soon but early identification of a problem can have a significant impact treatment. Our Children's Team will make their first visit a fun experience and ensure your child is set-up for lifelong oral health!
We encourage parents to bring their children in for regular dental check-ups. Check-ups may include oral examinations, cleanings, fluoride treatments, sealants (coatings to protect healthy teeth), x-rays, oral hygiene instructions, nutrition advice, and mouth guards (to help prevent sports injuries). We aim to minimise tooth decay and cavities and to give you and your child the tools to practice good oral hygiene habits that will last a lifetime.
Many parents of children with special needs are anxious about how their child will cope with dental treatment. This anxiety can lead to parents not taking their children to the dentist. We have over 20 years experience of dealing with children with special needs and we will work with you on the best approach to make your child relaxed and comfortable throughout their appointment.
