At The Good Dentist, Newcastle, children are our VIP patients. We enjoy having them in our clinic and it allows us to establish great oral hygiene practices from an early age. We are proudly regarded as one of the leading children’s dentists in Newcastle and provide exceptional care for the entire family.
We recommend that your child’s first dental check-up should be around their first birthday or six months after their first tooth appears. You may even consider having your child attend with you during your appointment by way of introduction. They become familiar with our practice without any expectations and we begin getting to know them. This gives us the perfect opportunity to tailor to their needs prior to their appointment.
The Good Dentist Provides a Welcoming Environment
One of the most important things about dental health for kids is that their first dental appointment makes them feel at home in a non-threatening environment. At The Good Dentist, we put everyone at ease: the more relaxed we can make your child, the quicker and easier the process is.
We have designed our practice around making visits as fun, friendly, and relaxed as possible. Our incredible team is truly gifted when it comes to connecting with children, especially if they are nervous or unsure. We are experienced with anxious children and understand that this is a new experience and that every child may react differently in a new environment.
Our goal is to establish a harmonious relationship with them, adapting to their needs, keeping the appointments moving along, and having some entertaining distractions such as iPads or Netflix. We make their first appointment exciting so they aren’t anxious about returning.
