The Journey to Lifelong Smiles Begins with Strong Foundations

Ensuring your child enjoys a healthy smile is crucial from their early years, through adolescence, and into their adult life. However, balancing this with a hectic family schedule of work, school, and countless other commitments can sometimes seem overwhelming.

Our aim is to make your dental visits as seamless and stress-free as possible. We’re here to accommodate your bustling family life with flexible scheduling and the option to book grouped appointments for convenience.

As your child matures, they’ll encounter numerous dental milestones – from their initial dental visit and the loss of their first tooth to the emergence of their permanent teeth and eventually taking the step to attend dental appointments independently. We’re excited to support them at every phase of their dental health journey.

to schedule an initial consultation & exam.

Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.

Frequently Asked Questions

It’s recommended that your child’s first dental visit occur by their first birthday or within six months after their first tooth appears. This initial visit typically involves a gentle examination of your child’s teeth, jaw, bite, gums, and oral tissues to check growth and development. It’s also a great opportunity for parents to learn about oral hygiene practices for children.

Preparing your child for their first dental visit can involve reading them books about visiting the dentist, playing “dentist” at home to familiarize them with what might happen, and using positive language when discussing the dentist. Avoid using words that might cause fear or anxiety. Instead, focus on the visit as an exciting opportunity for them to learn about their teeth.

Sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of back teeth (molars), where most cavities in children are found. They work by keeping out germs and food, thus preventing decay. Whether your child needs them can be determined by their dentist, based on their oral health status and cavity risk.

Just like adults, children should visit the dentist every six months for regular check-ups and cleanings unless advised otherwise by their dentist. These visits are crucial for spotting any potential issues early on and maintaining good oral health.

Children’s fear of the dentist can be eased by choosing a pediatric dentist who is experienced in dealing with children and creating a child-friendly environment. Other strategies include providing them with a clear idea of what to expect, accompanying them during the visit for comfort, and rewarding them for a successful visit to reinforce a positive association with dental care.
