Children’s Dentistry

Help Your Child Enjoy Going to the Dentist at EDentist Dandenong

At EDentist Dandenong, we want your children to feel comfortable and safe whenever they come to our office. Our supportive and friendly staff makes children’s dental appointments a familiar and fun occasion so they can look forward to teeth cleaning. As an experienced and patient children’s dentist in Dandenong, we strive to make every visit fun for you children while teaching them the importance of oral hygiene.

Dental Exams and Cleanings for Children

Our knowledgeable staff at EDentist Dandenong has years of experience working with young children. Kids need routine dental exams and cleanings to avoid gum disease and tooth decay. While baby teeth eventually fall out naturally, kids with unhealthy teeth will lose them early–before the adult teeth start to grow in–putting them at higher risk for gum infections.

When you bring your children to EDentist Dandenong, our staff knows how to handle kids who are nervous or frightened when coming to a dental appointment. Our educated and experienced dental technicians use a gentle, slow approach during children’s exams and cleanings to build a trusting relationship. With this approach, more children view dental visits as enjoyable instead of daunting.

The Importance of Children's Dentistry

Taking early corrective measures for a child’s oral health helps them maintain healthy teeth as they get older. That’s why we strive to be the go-to children’s dentist in Dandenong. Kids need to brush their teeth twice a day to reduce tooth decay and plaque. Kids should use a toothbrush with soft bristles and fluoride toothpaste. If your child is younger than eight years old, help them brush their teeth properly until they have developed the dexterity to do it themselves.

While we know that kids love candy, cupcakes, and other sugary treats, healthy moderation goes a long way to supporting oral health. Also limit your child’s intake of sugary and acidic soft drinks, juices, and sports drinks.

Set Your Child Up with Good Oral Care Habits

At EDentist Dandenong, we do more for your child’s oral health than cleanings. If you’re worried your child will be anxious or fearful at their first dentist appointment, try telling stories and playing games with them that revolve around dentists and dental exams. This practice makes dentist visits normal and fun in your child’s eyes.

For the most accommodating and comforting children’s dentists in Dandenong, there’s no better choice than EDentist.

Friendly, Welcoming Environment

Visiting the dentist can be scary–but it doesn’t have to be. We make going to the dentist a positive experience with kid-friendly waiting room activities and Netflix to watch during the appointment.

Kid-Friendly Explanations

Our dentists will explain what they're doing with simple words your child can understand. Your child can touch the tools and ask questions to understand how we're caring for their teeth.

Preventative Care

Children need tooth cleanings and examinations every six months. Our children's dentist identifies cavities early to prevent tooth decay from worsening.

Frequently Asked Questions

You can take your child to the dentist as soon as their first tooth erupts. We often recommend parents bring in their kids following their first birthday to ensure proper baby tooth development.
If your child has baby teeth but isn’t old enough to brush on their own yet, you can start cleaning their teeth with a small toothbrush or cloth and some water. When they are around 18 months, you can start cleaning their teeth with a pea-sized amount of toothpaste.
