Central Maitland Dentistry is a family oriented dental practice and we welcome young children and their parents. We advise parents to begin their child’s dental care at an early age, bringing them for their first check-up soon after their first tooth emerges.

Why is Early Dental Care So Important?

Early dental visits allow us to closely monitor the development of a child’s teeth and jaws and to provide the very best preventative dental care. Familiarising your child with visiting a dentist can help them to grow up with healthy, strong teeth and an attractive smile, and they are less likely to develop fears or phobias. This is far preferable than waiting until dental problems develop, when their first dental experience would become associated with pain and discomfort.

Can You Help Children Who Are Nervous about Dental Visits?

Please let us know if your child is anxious at the thought of seeing a dentist. Our friendly dental team can reassure nervous or anxious children and we do everything we can to ensure visits are as enjoyable as possible.

Our children’s dentistry treatments are focused on preventing problems from occurring. We try to identify problems that could develop so we can take preventative action. Our treatments include:

  • Check-ups
  • Oral hygiene education
  • Fluoride treatment
  • Fissure sealants
  • Mouthguards
