At what age should I bring my child to the dentist?

Young boy sitting on top of father's shouldersOur dentists recommend children’s dentistry in Mount Waverley, VIC at around age one. This initial booking is designed to acclimate your child to the sights and sounds of a dental clinic and make sure his or her teeth are coming in correctly. During this exam, your child can take a ride in the dental chair and learn a little about teeth counting.

Child's First Appointment

The first appointment is simply a way to help your child to feel comfortable and relaxed in the dental setting and have a look at their teeth and gums as well.

We believe that creating positive experiences around dentistry helps children develop healthy habits that may last into adulthood.

After your child’s first visit, we will introduce age-appropriate services and treatments as needed to help maintain your child’s smile.
