When should I make my child’s first appointment?
We recommend that children start seeing the dentist when their first teeth appear or by the time they turn one year old.
You are welcome to bring them in earlier if you have any questions or concerns.
Young children generally only need to see the dentist every 6-12 months. We will talk to you about this at your appointment.
Get them comfortable at the dentist
It is vital that children get used to coming in to see the dentist while they are young. This will help them form good associations and avoid any fear of dentists.
While children are growing, we monitor their facial growth and dental development closely. This will help avoid crowding of teeth and jaw issues. We also assess and address factors such as large tonsils, sleep apnoea or snoring, mouth breathing, and thumb sucking.
Bring your children to see us so that we can diagnose any problems early and your child can develop a happy, healthy, trusting relationship with our children’s dentist.
We believe in patient and parent education and will equip both with the knowledge required to maintain the child’s healthy dental development into adulthood.
At Henry Street Dental Care, we offer a wide range of dental treatments for children.
