As a family-friendly dental practice, we love helping children start on their journey to good dental health. From babies and toddlers coming along for your regular check-up to help with hygiene for older children and teeth straightening for teens – we’re here to give your child a smile they can feel confident about for the rest of their life.
When it comes to good oral health, the sooner you start the better. That’s why we actively encourage parents to bring babies and toddlers along for their dental check-ups. It’s a great way for children to become familiar with the dentist before they start attending their own visits.
It’s quite common for young children to become reluctant for a dentist to examine their teeth, especially as their milk teeth are coming through. Our dentists are very experienced in working with young children and provide a gentle introduction to visiting the dentist. As children get older, we encourage regular check-ups and hygienist appointments to pick up potential problems as soon as they occur, if not before.
