At The Good Dentist children are our VIP patients. Their visit always brightens our day and we love having them come and see us. We recommend that your child’s first dental check-up should be around their first birthday.
When your child is young, one of the most important things about their first visit is to make them feel at home in a non-threatening environment. At The Good Dentist we are able to put them at ease, from playing on the iPads in the waiting room, to relaxing in the chair and watching TV while we gently examine their teeth. We want them to have a play and to want to come back well before their next check-up.
Our main aim is all about preventative care and getting kids into good habits early in life to ensure optimum oral health for life. Should your child attend their first visit and we find a hole or decay, we will look at giving you a diet diary and our in-house dental nutritionist will work with you on ways to lower your child’s sugar intake. We will also educate you and your child on how best to look after and clean their teeth at home.
At The Good Dentist, we offer eligible children up to $1000 of dental treatment over two years through the Child Dental Benefits Scheme. We feel this scheme is vitally important to ensure that children attend the dentist regularly.
The Good Dentist is a full service family dental clinic. We look forward to being your kids’ dentist, and providing dental care for the whole family; watching them grow and develop, smiling the whole way through.
