Children's Dentistry

Warm and accommodating check-ups for our youngest patients. Introducing your children to the dentist can cause anxiety, but we ensure every experience is pleasant, comfortable and positive while we assess their oral health.


Paediatric dental care

The earlier you can help your children get used to the dentist, the more confident they will be visiting throughout their lifetime. Early childhood dental care teaches children to develop good oral health habits, like brushing and flossing daily. With regular examinations on top of that, we can help kids to prevent future dental problems and treat any that arise before they become too serious.

CDIC children’s dental clinicians can potentially eliminate or minimise the need for corrective treatment in their future. Employing the latest technological trends in the dental industry, we use digital x-rays, dental scanners, and a whole host of other systems and devices to offer the best solutions in children’s dentistry.


First visit to the dentist

Our clinic is designed to provide a warm and accommodating space for your little one. We understand that a visit to the dentist may be intimidating or a previous experience may have left them feeling anxious, which is why we are committed to delivering a relaxing and pleasant experience. We take extra precautions to ensure all our little patients have a positive dental experience in our clinic.

Children’s dentist appointments include routine check-ups and maintenance of teeth, and assessment of healthy growth. We may also repair cavities, treat gum problems, apply fissure sealants to protect from decay, and remove any difficult baby teeth that don’t want to fall out naturally. We put the greatest emphasis on teaching the importance of children’s oral health, and helping our youngest patients know how to look after their teeth.


The importance of early dental care

Early childhood dental care is crucial for setting your child up for a lifetime of good oral health. Children’s dentistry provides a good foundation for prevention and good oral health, helping children chew properly, speak clearly, and smile with confidence. It is crucial to see a pediatric dentist early enough to help familiarise children with the dentist.
