Why Is It So Important For Kids To Get To Know The Dentist?

For many of us, an aversion, dislike or even sheer hatred of the dentist developed through bad experiences at the dentist when we were younger. With the advent of many modern dental technologies, going to the dentist nowadays is not the same experience it was when we were children.

In order to help your kids develop good dental habits and to build a positive association with the dentist, it is a good idea to bring your kids along with you on your regular visit, or when an older sibling visits us.

When Should My Child First Visit The Dentist?

We are dedicated to treating your kids just as we would treat our own. Your child can begin regular dental visits as early as 6 months of age when their first tooth appears, even if it is just to ‘have a ride in the chair.’

Essentially, the earlier and more often your child visits us, the less fearful they are likely to be. Call us today on (07) 3856 2144 to discuss your child’s situation or to book your consultation.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
