The Good Dentist is proudly regarded as a leading children’s dentist in Newcastle, providing dental care for the whole family.

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.

“The perfect experience. Fabulous with both of my children (6&7), they haven’t stopped talking about their amazing dentist since they left, their only disappointment is they aren’t going there every week! Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Gareth and his team – beautiful and genuinely caring!”

“We have just been for our family check up trip to see Gareth at The Good Dentist. The whole team are wonderful and all of us (including the kids) enjoy going to see them. Gareth is especially amazing with the children. The whole experience is more like going to visit a friend rather than our dentist. I can’t recommend The Good Dentist highly enough. If you’ve ever had a bad dental experience in the past, go and see these guys and you’ll be cured!”

“I can’t recommend them highly enough, particularly for children. I took my daughter (22 month old) to see Garreth for her first dental visit today. As soon as we walked into the room he and the dental nurse had The Wiggles playing and big smiles on their face ready to welcome her in with a high five. They both had great chemistry with the kids. She felt very special leaving with the gift bag they gave her. Perfect environment to ease kids into dental appointments. My 6 month old seemed to enjoy it all too!”
