Book an appointment

Here's how it works.

1

Getting to Know You

At the beginning of the appointment, the dentist and dental nurse will introduce themselves and chat with your child to build rapport. This helps your child feel more comfortable and trusting.

2

Dental Examination

The dentist will gently examine your child's teeth, gums, and mouth. They'll use kid-friendly terminology and explain what they're doing in an age-appropriate manner.

3

Teeth Cleaning

If your child is comfortable, the dental hygienist will gently clean their teeth using special tools. They'll remove plaque and tartar and polish their teeth to make them feel fresh and clean.

4

Fluoride Treatment

A fluoride treatment might be offered to help protect your child's teeth from cavities. It's often applied as a gel or varnish and can be flavored to make it more enjoyable.

5

X-rays (if needed)

If X-rays are necessary, our team will explain the process to your child and ensure they feel safe. X-rays help the dentist see areas between teeth and below the gumline that can't be seen during a regular examination.

6

Oral Health Education

Our team will teach your child about the importance of brushing, flossing, and maintaining good oral hygiene. They'll use visuals and demonstrations to make it fun and educational.

A pleasant dental experience for your child.

Overall, children dentistry plays a crucial role in promoting and maintaining optimal oral health for children. By starting early and establishing a positive dental experience, children can develop good oral hygiene habits and enjoy a lifetime of healthy smiles.

  • Early detection and prevention of dental issues

    Regular visits to a pediatric dentist allow for early detection of any potential dental problems such as tooth decay, gum disease, or misalignment. By identifying these issues early on, appropriate preventive measures can be taken to address them, preventing further complications in the future.

  • Establishing good oral hygiene habits

    Pediatric dentists educate children and their parents about the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene practices. They teach children how to brush and floss properly, encouraging them to develop healthy habits that will last a lifetime. This helps prevent cavities and other dental problems.

  • Monitoring growth and development

    Pediatric dentists closely monitor the growth and development of a child’s teeth and jaws. They can identify any abnormalities or irregularities in the eruption of permanent teeth, jaw alignment, or bite pattern. Early intervention can be provided if necessary, ensuring proper development and reducing the need for extensive orthodontic treatment later on.

  • Managing dental anxiety and fear

    Many children experience dental anxiety or fear when visiting the dentist. Pediatric dentists are specially trained to create a friendly and welcoming environment for children, helping them feel comfortable and at ease during their dental visits. This positive experience helps alleviate dental anxiety and encourages children to maintain regular dental check-ups throughout their lives.

  • Preventing dental emergencies

    Children are prone to dental injuries due to their active lifestyles and participation in sports. Pediatric dentists can provide custom-made mouthguards to protect their teeth during physical activities. Additionally, they can offer guidance on how to prevent common dental emergencies and what to do in case of an injury.

  • Specialized care for children with special needs

    Pediatric dentists have expertise in providing dental care to children with special needs, such as those with physical, developmental, or cognitive disabilities. They are trained to handle the unique challenges that these children may face and can provide appropriate dental treatment in a compassionate and supportive manner.
