What should I expect on my child's first visit to the dentist?
Early childhood dental visits are essential for helping your child develop a positive experience with dental visits. Finding a kids’ dentist in Hampton, VIC will give you an opportunity to create a solid foundation for a lifelong healthy smile.
Your child’s first dental appointment is also a great opportunity to learn how to take care of your little one’s teeth at home. Your child will need your assistance brushing and flossing until they develop their dexterity and dedication to do it on their own, usually by the age of eight or nine.
What Will Happen At Your Child's Appointment
A trip to the dentist for your little one will be a fun experience. We will take him or her for a ride in the chair and have a look at their teeth to make sure they are developing properly. We will maintain excellent communication with parents as children grow and will help avoid common oral conditions such as dental caries (decay). Fluoride applications, fissure sealants and regular dental cleans will promote a healthy smile for your child.
We welcome children of all ages and provide gentle dentistry at their pace. Contact us for a caring kids’ dentist in Hampton, VIC. We look forward to meeting you and your family.
