Paediatric Dentistry

Dental Care For Kids

Taking your child to the dentist from an early age will help to ensure your child’s mouth, gums and teeth are forming properly and are free from developmental issues.

It is important to identify potential dental issues in children from an early age so that we can provide preventative or restorative treatment options.

Early introduction to the dentist means your child will be better educated on how to care for their teeth and gums and is crucial in helping them become comfortable within the clinic surroundings.

In a calm, fun and reassuring environment, your child can become accustomed to sitting in the dentist’s chair, having their teeth examined and cleaned.

Unless children and young people are taken to the dentist at regular intervals, they can become fearful or anxious about undergoing dental treatment in later life.

Taking your child to regular dental appointments helps to give them confidence and alleviate any anxieties they may have.


When should children first go to the dentist?
Most dentists recommend that infants visit the dentist before their first birthday or within six months of their first tooth eruption. Typically, children begin to get their first teeth within the first six months of their lives but if you’re concerned about your baby’s teeth, gums or mouth, don’t hesitate to seek professional help.
How often should children go to the dentist?
Like adults, it is recommended that children visit the dentist regularly and young people are usually given a dental check-up every six months. However, appointments can also be made in between these check-ups and it’s always best to see your dentist if you have any concerns about your child’s oral health.
Is paediatric dentistry expensive?
Having your child’s teeth checked at regular intervals is a cost-effective way of managing their oral health. By identifying any potential problems or issues early, action can be taken more swiftly and this is usually far more cost-effective than waiting for problems to become visually apparent.
