Children’s Dentistry

>>Children’s Dentistry

Children’s dentistry is a special interest here at CHOC. Almost half of Australian children by the age of 6 years old would have experienced tooth decay. We believe a gentle friendly approach to dental care at an early age will have lifetime benefit into adulthood.

Dental experts recommend a dental check-up by age 2 years of age. It does not necessarily mean a visit to the dental practice. A dental check-up can be provided by your family doctor, maternal child health nurse, dentist and oral health therapist.

To promote good child oral health, the dental team at CHOC runs a preschool dental-check-up program. This year, we have seen children for a dental check-up at Goodstart Early Learning (Reservoir) and Northland Kinder Haven.

Children who visit CHOC will be welcomed in family friendly environment. They can watch their favourite TV show during their dental visit.

If you need a pediatric dentist in Coburg, arrange a consultation with one of our dentists or oral health therapists today for your first child’s dental visit. Contact our dental team at Coburg Hill Oral Care on (03) 9041 5301.

    I think that it’s important to make sure that you take your children to a specialized children’s dentist. My son is very scared of going to the dentist, but I think that if he goes to the right place, he can be safe. Children’s dentists are good at dealing with kids by making the appointment as comfortable as possible. Thanks for sharing!

      Thankyou for sharing your comments. Here at CHOC, we know that a good start to oral health is the best way to keep our teeth healthy for life. The research tells us that only 30% of Australian children before preschool age have had a dental check-up. By promoting early dental visits, children are more comfortable with our dental team should they need to see us at the dental practice.

    I’ve been trying to come up with a good way to get my child to the dentist. I didn’t know that there were pediatric dentists! That seems like a great way to ensure that they are treated properly. Thank you for sharing!

    This is some great information, and I appreciate your suggestion to take your child in for a dental checkup by two years old. My daughter has almost reached that age, and I had no idea that she needed to have a checkup already. I want her to stay as healthy as possible, so I’ll definitely look into finding a pediatric dentist to take her to soon. Thanks for the great post!

    I’m trying to come up with a way to get my kid’s teeth taken care of. It makes sense that I would want to find a place that specializes in it! That way I know that they understand the best methods to take care of my kid’s teeth.
