Children Dentistry

We Care for Their Teeth

Things seem to be bigger, scarier and more difficult for children and it’s no different when it comes to their teeth. It can be hard enough to teach them great brushing habits, let alone getting them into the dentist’s chair. Sometimes the challenge of taking your kids to the dentist can seem too hard but we strive to make it easier with our friendly and gentle approach to dentistry.Child dentistry in the chair

At Delight Dental our small but dedicated team are experts in children’s dentistry. As your family dentist we can help to shape great oral habits, starting with the baby’s first tooth and caring for them through adolescence and into adulthood. There are a range of great benefits and services that regular visits to your dentist can provide so it’s important to start from a young age.

Children’s Dentistry – When to Start

There are benefits for your children from their very first dental visit, but when exactly should that be? We encourage you to book an appointment around 6 months after their first tooth comes through. This way we can monitor their development from an early age and identify and resolve any issues early on. Regular visits will also help to shape your children’s oral health habits, so 6 monthly appointments are encouraged after their initial visit.

What You Can Expect

The Delight Dental team are small but dedicated, and we take the time to care for your children when you visit our clinic. We go beyond great oral care and advice, and do what we can to make everyone feel comfortable. We know that early dentist visits can seem daunting so we aim to create a caring and relaxing environment. As well as introducing them to great habits and monitoring their development, our services for children include:

  • Monitoring for early signs of decay
  • General cleaning and polishing
  • Examining their gums
  • Providing specially formulated mouth guards for active kids

Our Bulk Billing Policy Means Affordable Care

We understand that between knee-scrapes and the common cold, your children will need regular medical services. That’s why we bulk bill patients who are eligible for the Child Dental Benefits Schedule. The CDBS is for children between 2 and 17 years old and provides general dental treatment to the value of $1000 over 2 years. You can learn more about it from the Department of Human Services website.
