Children’s Dental Care

We provide friendly children’s dental care and a comfortable environment for the whole family. As your local children’s dentist, we look forward to helping you look after your kids’ teeth from baby to teenager and beyond!

Children’s dentist services we provide include:

  • Check-ups and x-rays
  • Teeth cleaning & fluoride treatments
  • Fissure sealant
  • Oral health education
  • Ortho assessment
  • Growth monitoring
  • Sports mouthguards

When should I make my child’s first appointment?

We recommend that children start seeing the dentist between 2-3 years old unless there is an issue.

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

Young children generally see the dentist every six months. We will talk to you about this at your appointment.

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 children’s dentist.

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 sports drinks

Energy and sports drinks contain high levels of acid and sugar. These can start destroying teeth after only a few days of consistent use. Damaged enamel can cause sensitivity and susceptibility to decay and cavities.

Child Dental Benefit Schedule

Our practice supports the Child Dental Benefit Schedule (CDBS) and we bulk bill all eligible children.

The Government funded Child Dental Benefit Schedule is now available for families with children aged 2-17 years. Families must receive Government Benefits. The CDBS has a means test, which requires receipt of Family Tax Benefit Part A or a relevant Australian Government payment. If children are eligible, they receive up to $1000 over two calendar years for preventative and restorative dentistry.

Eligible services include:

  • Examinations
  • X-rays
  • Cleaning
  • Fissure sealing
  • Fillings
  • Root canals
  • Extractions
  • Dentures

Note that the CDBS scheme does not cover cosmetic dental work or orthodontics.
