We provide friendly children’s dental care and a comfortable environment for the whole family. As your children’s dentist, we look forward to helping you take care of their teeth.

  • Check-ups and x-rays
  • Teeth cleaning & fluoride treatments
  • Fissure sealants
  • Oral health education
  • Sports mouthguards

 

When should I make my child’s first appointment?

We recommend that children start seeing the dentist by the time they’re two years old.

You are welcome to bring them in earlier if you have any questions or concerns.

Young children generally only need to see the dentist every 6-12 months.

 

Get them comfortable at the dentist!

It is vital that children get used to coming in to see the dentist while they are young. This will help them form good associations and avoid any fear of dentists.

While children are growing, we monitor their facial growth and dental development closely. This will help avoid crowding of teeth and jaw issues. We also assess and address factors such as large tonsils, sleep apnoea or snoring, mouth breathing and thumb sucking.

Bring your children to see us so that we can diagnose any problems early and your child can develop a happy, healthy, trusting relationship with our team.



What about teenagers and their teeth?

 

 

Mouthguards

If your child plays a contact sport, a fitted mouthguard from your dentist offers the best protection. Chat to us about the colours and styles available.

 

Sugary drinks

Sugary drinks contain high levels of acid and sugar. These can damage teeth if consumed regularly. Damaged enamel can cause sensitivity and susceptibility to decay and cavities.

Find out what the Australian Dental Association recommends for children and teenagers.

 

Child Dental Benefit Scheme (CDBS)

The Government funded Child Dental Benefit Scheme is now available for eligible families with children aged 2-17 years.

You can confirm your child’s eligibility and balance amount by accessing your Medicare online account at myGov or calling the Medicare general enquiries line on 132 011.
