Creating good habits for a lifetime of cheeky grins
Kids can often be hesitant about medical-related experiences, so our friendly staff use technology to create an environment with healthy distractions that help them feel at ease.
Your child’s first dental visit
We recommended visiting the dentist from 2 years old. A comprehensive visual examination will assess any concerns or identify possible future issues. You’re both also taught proper dental hygiene at home to keep up in-between visits.
Follow up that’s easy as ABC
Keeping track of annual check-ups is easy with reminders and scheduling. Book in a time that suits and we’ll remind you a week before so you never miss a visit (we know life can get busy!)
