Children’s Dentistry at BDF Dental
We believe it is extremely important for children to have a positive dental experience during their childhood as it sets the foundation for a lifetime of optimal oral health. We provide comprehensive and gentle dental care to even our youngest patients. Our dedicated team is committed to ensuring your child feels comfortable, safe and excited about their dental visits.
When should my child have their first dental visit?
It is recommended that a child should visit the dentist within 6 months after their first tooth erupts or by their first birthday, whichever comes first. This initial visit allows the dentist to examine the child’s oral health, address any concerns and provide guidance on proper oral care. Early dental visits help establish a positive relationship between the child and the dentist, making subsequent visits more comfortable and enjoyable.
How often should my child be going to the dentist?
Regular dental check-ups should be done every 6 months to monitor their oral health and provide preventative care. However, it’s important to note that individual circumstances may vary and your dentist can provide personalised recommendations based on your child’s specific needs.
What can I do to help my child feel excited about their dental visit at BDF Dental?
You can let them know about all the fun things that’ll happen when they come in! They’ll get to lay back, relax and watch their favourite show or movie on the TV above! Leave with a goodie pack that they can take home and… if they do super well with their appointment, they’ll get to go on a hunt through the treasure chest and pick a fun prize!
