Kidz Teeth teamYour Child's First Visit

Dental Life

Childhood is an important period in a person’s dental life.

Most children today have no fear of attending a dental surgery. Young children observe their parents and older siblings accepting oral care as an integral part of life. 

Occasional Fear

However, occasionally children do show signs of fear the first time their teeth are checked or after having a bad dental experience. Often a friend or relative frightening the child either intentionally or unintentionally causes this fear.

Information

Dental appointments for children are very different to that of an adult. 

On the first and subsequent visits we aim to provide children with full information about the visit, to help them overcome their anxieties.

We firmly believe that this approach prepares the child to enter adulthood with a positive attitude towards dental health.

This is the key to our success. The first visit is always a consultation only, no treatment is performed.
