Our experienced dentists understand the challenges parents face and can help you and your child work towards a preventive oral health routine and tooth-friendly diet.
We recommend bringing your child along for their first appointment when their first tooth comes through. This is normally at around 6 months.
During your child’s first few dentist appointments, it’s all about getting them comfortable with the dental practice environment. They may not open their mouths the first few times they visit, which is a completely normal reaction. Once we have built up their confidence, we can carry out a routine examination. This involves:
We can’t stress how important it is to bring your child along twice a year for a check-up, even if there is nothing seemingly wrong with their teeth. Your child’s dentist will be able to pick up on small signs of decay, which could ultimately prevent the need for more involved dental treatment.
Almost 90% of hospital tooth extractions amongst children aged between 0 to 5 are due to decay. We want to help parents to keep their child’s risk of decay to an absolute minimum, as not only can an extraction disrupt their dental wellbeing, it can be a preventable, traumatic experience that children simply should not have to endure.
Dr Gary Cohen and his team have cared for the community for over 26 years. Together, they have built a reputation for being a caring, kind, friendly and professional dental team.
We love interacting with children and helping them to find the fun in looking after their teeth. The treatment we provide for your child is prevention orientated. It’s our mission to give your child the best possible chance of avoiding problems like decay and dental infections. Our dentists can also provide dietary advice that will reduce the sugar in your child’s diet, which alongside a good brushing routine, will significantly reduce the possibility of dental complications.
Book your child in for their bi-annual check-up by calling our friendly reception team, who will do their best to answer your questions and find you a convenient appointment.
