Your child’s first visit to the dentist involves a simple visual inspection of their teeth, gums and mouth to check that everything is healthy and developing normally. We don’t use dental x-rays when examining young children, unless we feel it’s strictly necessary.
If we spot signs of a possible problem, we’ll discuss all the treatment options with you. This could involve a treatment at our dental clinic or simply improving your child’s oral hygiene at home.
Our dentists and oral health therapists can offer advice about brushing your child’s teeth and other ways to take care of their oral health every day. You’ll also have the chance to ask us any questions or discuss any concerns you might have about teething, thumb-sucking, dummies and other oral health concerns on your mind.
Why not let your child participate in our Tooth Defenders Program?
The Tooth Defenders Program, is a pre check-up visit. Your child will get to have a ride in the dental chair, look at the equipment on the chair i.e. the suction, receive a dental take home pack, have a look at the surgery and meet some of the team. This is a great way to introduce them to the dentist.
We will also provide mum and dad with some information to take home. Best of all, this service is FREE!
