We recommend bringing children in for their first dental appointment at about 3 years old. We check their teeth and provided they feel comfortable, we also polish their teeth and apply fluoride. There are 2 reasons we do this:
1) At a young age, we can begin monitoring their oral health to ensure there is no disease and ensure their teeth positioning is correct, and
2) We can prevent issues from arising as well as begin to create a healthy, positive dental experience for the child which can then continue for a lifetime.
At Super Smiles Dental, we have TV screens on the ceiling and can play children’s favourite shows whilst in the dental chair – it’s an experience that children always love!
FREE Kids Dental!
At Super Smiles Dental we are proud to offer FREE Dentistry for eligible children under the Government’s Child Dental Benefit Scheme. Those eligible can receive benefits up to a maximum of $1000 over a two-calendar year period.
Some eligibility requirements to participate in the program include:
- Aged between 2-17 years
- The family must receive Family Tax Benefit Part A; or
- The family must receive a relevant Australian Government payment
Children can suffer from common dental issues such as tooth decay, cavities, gum disease and tooth grinding. That’s why it’s important to book regular appointments with one of Super Smiles Dental’s dentists.
We offer different paediatric dental services like preventive care, routine cleaning, oral examinations, dental x-rays, filling and extractions. Our children’s dental work is broad so that your children can learn good oral hygiene and receive preventive dental work from an early age.
