Dental Care for Children

Infants & Children at the dentist

In order to maintain the oral health of your child, we recommend you take him or her for regular visits to the dentist. We understand that every child has a different personality and way of expressing emotions and fears.

When should my child first visit the dentist?

We recommend you first visit the dentist with your child about six months after his / her first teeth come through around the time of their first birthday.


How you can help prepare for the first visit

It's very important that your child's first visit to the dentist be a positive experience - also remember that if you are anxious then this is likely to influence your child. We recommend that you tell your children about the visit in advance, however do not go into too much detail. Explain to your child the positive effects of a visit to the dentist, the importance of maintaining healthy teeth and gums and that the dentist's job is to help them achieve this. 


What happens on the first visit?

The first visit is sometimes no more than an introduction to your dentist and may include a ride in the chair. Sometimes your child may be frightened or uncomfortable, patience and calm is very important. In our experience, short successive visits are good at building your child's trust in the dentist.
