Your child's dental visit explained
A trip to the dentist can be a daunting experience for children, which is why we work hard to make every visit fun and relaxed. We understand that every child is different, so we'll tailor each appointment to your child's individual needs. At their first appointment, we'll introduce your child to our dental team and show them around. They'll get a ride in the spaceship (the dentist's chair) and get to see how all of the magic tools work. We make every examination and procedure quick and pain-free. We can also provide advice and support to inspire children to care for their teeth at home. Treatments for children include:
- Preventive dental care – regular check-ups, fluoride treatments and dietary advice to help minimise the risk of tooth decay.
- Restorative dental care – fillings, crowns and other treatments to repair damage caused by tooth decay or injury.
- Orthodontic treatment – braces and other treatments to align teeth and jaws.

Frequently asked questions
During a routine dental checkup, the dentist will clean your child’s teeth and check for any signs of decay or other problems. The dentist may also take X-rays to get a closer look at your child’s teeth and make sure everything is developing properly.
Most children should visit the dentist every six months for a routine cleaning and checkup. However, some children may need to come more often depending on their individual needs.
There is no set age for when a child can get braces, as this depends on several factors including the child’s dental health and the severity of the bite or tooth alignment issues. However, braces are typically recommended once all adult teeth have grown in – usually around age 12 or 13.
One of the best ways to prepare your child for a dental visit is to start building healthy dental habits at an early age. This includes teaching them the importance of brushing and flossing regularly, as well as taking them in for regular checkups and cleanings.
Yes, we offer fluoride treatment for children. Fluoride is a mineral that helps to prevent tooth decay and is found in many foods and water sources. Getting regular fluoride treatments can help to keep your child’s teeth healthy and strong.
At our practice, we specialize in working with children and helping them feel comfortable and at ease during their visits. We understand that many kids are nervous about the dentist, especially if they have had a bad experience in the past.
