Dental Check-Ups

We suggest you book your child’s first dental check-up soon after they get their first tooth or by age one. At this age, it is a great opportunity for them to become familiar with dental visits and this first examination is extremely gentle. We may just get you to hold them on your lap while we take a quick look. The main purpose of this visit is to make sure their mouth is developing nicely and to chat to you about their dental care at home. We definitely encourage questions so please feel free to ask us about anything you aren’t quite sure about.

At subsequent visits we can check for signs of problems and will generally monitor their development. Their teeth will be carefully cleaned and polished at each check-up, as this is an excellent preventative dental treatment for ensuring they have healthy teeth and gums. We also offer preventive fluoride treatment which helps strengthen the enamel and reduce the risk of tooth decay. As they grow older, we can show your child how to look after their own teeth in a way that is fun and informative.

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.
