Having your child adopt good dental habits early on is key to a life of great oral health. We’re here to help you with this. It helps to have a dentist you can trust to support you through the many dental changes and milestones children go through.
Regular dental check-ups are essential for children. It helps familiarise them with the dental environment and build a relationship with their dentist. It also allows your dentist to detect any potential issues early on and ensure optimal dental development. Our dentists recommend that you bring your child for their first dental visit before the age of one.
We’re here to help you give your child the best possible start to having a healthy smile for life.
Your Child’s First Dental Visit
When it comes to your little one’s first trip to the dentist our aim is to make them feel at ease. This may include letting them go for a ride in the dental chair (on Mum or Dad’s lap) and performing a subtle oral examination.
The oral examination will involve your dentist gently checking their gums, teeth and soft tissues of their mouth. They will also assess their jaw and bite.
As your children’s dentist in Palm Beach, we encourage you to ask any question you may have about your child’s oral health. Our dentists will never rush you. We take the time to get to know you and your child and address any concerns.
Our dental team loves children. We do all we can to ensure your child’s first dental visit is a comfortable and enjoyable experience. We are the children’s dentist in Palm Beach you can rely on.
