At what age can I start bringing my child to the dentist?

Childrens dentist fairfield nsw We like the little ones to come in as early as 18 months to sit on Mum's lap and just have a ride in the chair. It familiarises them with the practice, and as they get old enough for us to look in their mouths, they are nice and relaxed because they have already learned what the dental practice is about.

We take cues from your child to determine when they are ready to have an exam and to allow us to brush their teeth. Every child’s level of comfort is different, and by going at your little one’s pace, we eliminate the stress of the unknown.

When parents have a positive outlook about oral care, they can pass that along to their kids. The opposite is also true. When we work together toward creating a healthy foundation for your child’s oral health, your child will have the tools necessary to enjoy a lifelong, healthy smile.

We offer children’s exams, cleans, fluoride application, fissure sealants, fillings and emergency dentistry to protect both deciduous (baby) and permanent teeth.
