Family and Kid's Dentistry

When should a child first visit the dentist?

Looking for a children’s dentist in St Kilda, Melbourne? Our family friendly dental clinic offers the best dental care for children of any age group. Located in St Kilda, we provide dental care for the whole family, including the youngest members.

A toddler’s dental visit can easily be marred by a bad experience. When a child experiences trauma during a dental experience, it can have an impact on their dental care throughout their life, therefore it is important to set a good foundation and we can definitely help you achieve that.

We aim to make your child’s visit to our clinic fun, and we are confident of providing a safe and friendly environment and child-friendly dentistry St Kilda residents will love.

People regularly enquire about when they should first bring their child to the dentist. We recommend that children should first visit a dentist upon the appearance of their first tooth, or before their first birthday.

Early intervention allows us to track tooth development using gentle, industry-leading techniques.

We provide complete dental care for children, including, diagnostic, preventative and restorative procedures. Our clinic is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment with the most advanced technology available within the dental industry. Additionally, we use only high-quality materials for all treatments and procedures.
