When should my child first see the dentist?
While the Australian Dental Association recommends that children have their first visit to the dentist by age one, we recognise that each child is different and has a different attention span, which affects what we can accomplish at their initial appointment.
We find that kids are more cooperative at age two, but you are always welcome to bring your little one to your appointment to help them grow accustomed to the dental environment. This makes it more likely for your little one to cooperate when it is his or her time in the chair.
Taking care of children’s teeth begins, however, even before they erupt. Our experienced team will demonstrate how to keep gums healthy and how to look after your child’s very first emerging teeth.
Our North Tamworth dental clinic promotes a family-friendly environment with televisions in the treatment rooms, a play area for little ones and a team who loves to see little ones in the surgery.
As with adults, we thoroughly customise your child’s dentistry to support their unique needs. Our dentists are conservative in their approach and will only recommend fluoride application and fissure sealants if they are necessary.
For reliable and gentle paediatric dentistry, contact our North Tamworth dental clinic to book their first ‘happy visit’ with one of our dentists. We can’t wait to help them develop a healthy attitude toward dentistry.
