Children’s Dentistry

We are a family orientated practice and as such offer a full range of children’s dental care. Dental exams, preventative dental cleans, at home brushing techniques, fillings and sealants are all offered routinely to our younger patients. More advanced and intricate care is also offered through Myofunctional therapy and traditional orthodontics.

As children’s dental needs are different to those of adults, our team of Oral Health Therapists are specifically trained in general paediatric (children’s) dentistry and provide a positive and gentle educational  environment for your children to learn about good oral health care.

Our team of Dental Hygienists, Oral Health Therapists and Dentists all play differing roles in children’s dental development and care. Our aim is to equip you and your child with all the necessary information and techniques to learn the importance of good dental health and hygiene from an early age.

We understand the anxiousness that many parents and children experience when going to the dentist. Our approach is non-invasive, gentle and positive. We welcome all discussions about the oral health of your child.
