Children’s Dentistry


Walkerston Dental is a very child-friendly practice and we all love seeing kids. Our experienced and very gentle dental team takes extensive care when seeing young children to ensure they feel relaxed and comfortable during their visit and we will go out of our way to make sure your child enjoys a positive experience at every visit. We are very good at helping to soothe a nervous or anxious child. We have seen very anxious kids overcome their fear and get the necessary treatment in the chair with gentle encouragement and positive reinforcements. Please talk to us if your child is at all worried about coming to see us so we can help them overcome any fears. We also offer treatment under General Anaesthetic at the Mater Hospital for children who just cant cope with treatment in the chair.

Our focus is on preventative dentistry which is why we like to see young children from an early age. The sooner we can develop a regular routine of good professional dental care and good oral care at home, the greater the chance of your child being able to enjoy a healthy smile for life.

We hope you are doing well.

Given the unprecedented situation and the uncertainties surrounding the COVID -19, we felt it was important to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to keep our practice clean and safe for every single one of you who step inside and also for our lovely team.

We have always maintained rigorous infection control procedures and take pride that as an accredited practice, we have a clearly-defined system of measuring our compliance with regulations and guidelines, allowing us to continually improve how we operate our practice.

During the last few days, we have been closely following our professional health authority’s guidance and if you have been in recently, you would have noticed that we have implemented a few additional measures in the way we operate.

We will check on you to see if you are well before you come in. Please inform us before you come in, if you are unwell or have travelled overseas or have come in contact with anyone who tested positive or highly likely to be positive for COVID-19. We will reschedule your appointment. If you are in pain and need urgent dental treatment during this time, please contact the Base Hospital. They will triage and treat accordingly.

Steps taken at our practice

We might reschedule some non-urgent treatment in the coming days, but every effort will be made to help you in the best way possible if you are in pain or any discomfort with your teeth.

It is a constantly evolving situation and we understand that it can be stressful; we will have to stay calm but vigilant and help each other out the best we can.
