The best start in life
By introducing your children to the dentist early, good habits are encouraged. We’ll teach them how to brush and floss properly, and educate them about their teeth and the importance of a healthy diet.
To ensure your children’s teeth have the best protection, we offer services such as fluoride treatments, cleaning, white fillings and even sports mouthguards for kids’ teeth.
We recommend your children come to see us before they are two years old. After that, it will usually be enough for them to see us once a year. However, if, after inspecting your child’s teeth, your dentist may recommend you have more frequent visits or prescribe other preventative oral health measures.
Your child’s first dental visit
Here’s how you can help make sure your child’s first experience with the dentist is a positive one:
- Explain the event as a fun, positive one.
- Avoid using any negative words or phrases, such as “scary”, “be brave” or “nasty”.
- Be excited about the new relationship your child is developing with the dentists and dental hygienist.
- Make sure you are not rushed or anxious on the day.
