Did you know that most dental decay is preventable? We recommend routine scale and cleans as well as a professional fluoride treatment every six months. When these are combined with a good hygiene and diet plan, your child can lower their chances of unwanted cavities and dental emergencies in the future.
Your Child’s First Appointment
Second and Subsequent Visits
Like adults, intermittent recare appointments are scheduled twice per year. If your child is in braces, has special needs or tends to have poor oral hygiene (with significant buildup) we may recommend cleans on a more frequent basis.
Until your child can tie their shoes, we recommend following behind them to help ensure they brush and floss thoroughly each day. With enough practice, your child will develop the independence they need to maintain a healthy smile well into adulthood.
Gap Free Children's Dental Care
We provide gap free checkups for kids who have health fund cover. The Child Dental Benefits Schedule also supports families without health fund cover by covering eligible children with up to $1,000 in basic services every 2 years. This includes examinations, x-rays, cleanings, fissure sealants, fillings, extractions and root canals.
* Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
