At Blackburn Centre Dental Clinic, our team is passionate about children’s dentistry, which focuses on educating the young generation about the importance of oral hygiene that they would follow for a lifetime. We understand that visiting a dentist is not always the most pleasant experience. That’s why our friendly staff, with smiles and patience, does their best so children will have a positive experience. A child’s appointment will be quick, inclusive, and fun.
We bulk bill Medicare Child Benefit Scheme.
For those who are very nervous, we offer sedation, so your little one doesn’t suffer needlessly. Our goal is to provide the best care in the best environment as we help you and your child have positive dental experiences on each visit.
What happens during my child’s first visit to the dentist?
The first visit is usually short and simple. We focus on getting to know your child and we give you basic information about dental care. Our dentist will check your child’s teeth for proper development and overall health, and look for any potential problems with the teeth, gums, and jaw. If necessary, we may do a thorough cleaning and demonstrate the way to maintain a clean mouth at home. We will also answer any questions you have about how to care for your child’s teeth as they develop, and provide you with materials containing helpful tips about their diet that you can refer to at home.
