Teaching children good dental habits from an early age is vitally important. These habits can last well into adulthood, giving them a great head start in caring for their teeth and a positive attitude towards dental health.
A great way to introduce your young children to a dentist is to bring them in when you book a full dental check-up with us. They get used to going to the dentist and can see that there is nothing to fear. This can start from as young as 2 years of age.
Some children are anxious about visiting the dentist, particularly if it's their first visit, so we do everything we can to put them at ease and make it a fun experience.
Every child who visits our dentist receives a toothbrush and a gift from the 'surprise' drawer at the end of their visit.
If children come to us needing treatment or it's their first visit then often parents can be as anxious as the kids! We take an empathic approach to both parents and children and explain every part of the procedure before it happens.
We'll also update parents on their child's development and answer any concerns or questions you might have. A little reassurance goes a long way!
To start your child off with the right attitude to caring for their teeth, call us on 03 9557 9444 to book your first dental appointment with one of our friendly children's dentist at Bentleigh.
