We recommend that your child has their first dental check-up before their first birthday. We are also on hand for dietary advice (especially on the intake of sugars) and proper oral care recommendations.
The journey to a life of healthy teeth and gums starts even before your child requires dental care. The relationship between your child and their dentist is just as important as their level of skill and expertise. If they see you smiling after a dental visit, they are likely to do the same!
At Dental on Marion we believe the key to lifelong good oral health starts with proper education, at an early age, on how to look after your own teeth and recognise any signs of declining oral health. During your child’s first and subsequent check-ups we will spend time showing them proper brushing and flossing techniques, providing dietary advice (such as being aware of their sugar intake) and preventative treatment where necessary (such as fissure sealants, topical fluoride applications and oral hygiene visits). We aim to make their appointments positive and something to look forward to.
There is no greater gift than that of good oral health, not only can this affect your child’s confidence but also alleviate future pain and extensive treatment.
We offer generous discounts for all children that attend our practice until they finish school. If you are in a health fund, we do not charge the gap on any preventative care. If you are not in a health fund, we offer care at a discounted rate.
