Our family dentists love seeing children. In fact, Dr Manu Kaur (Dentist) was a children’s specialist before immigrating to Australia. Her unique experience enables us to provide specialty treatments that are usually only available in pediatric dental offices.
We work great with children and are attuned to the unique needs of young patients and their families.
Early Dental Care is Important
Tooth decay is one of the most common health problems seen in Australian youth. To limit the extent of cavities, it’s best for children to see a dentist for their first exam by one year of age and every six months thereafter. These early visits establish a familiarity with the practice, limiting any anxiety or unexpected surprises for your child.
Additionally, routine check and cleans allow us to provide interceptive or therapeutic treatments when conditions are smaller and easier to correct.
Pediatric Treatments Offered
Depending on the needs of your child, some of our pediatric dental services include:
- Nutritional counseling
- Oral hygiene instruction
- Topical fluoride
- Preventative cleanings
- Routine exams
- Diagnostic X-rays
- Orthodontic evaluations
- Fissure sealants
- Crowns and nerve treatments
- Emergency care
We recommend scheduling a preventative appointment twice each year. Being that children’s teeth rapidly change and develop, it’s important to screen for potential dental concerns on a frequent basis beginning at an early age. Prompt diagnosis not only makes treatment less invasive, it reduces the cost of care over the lifetime of your child’s smile.
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) covers up to $1,000 in dental services every two years for approved children. Take advantage of coverage on routine and preventative dentistry to reduce your family’s out of pocket expenses.
New patients are always welcome. We invite you to contact us today to schedule your child or family’s first check and clean. Bupa, HCF and NIB insurance plans accepted!
