Happy Kids, Healthy Teeth

Paediatric dentistry at our Oakleigh South practice remains one of our main focuses. Our dentists believe that early dental care and management are keys to helping your child nurture and maintain excellent oral health. We are offering a comprehensive range of kids’ dentistry treatments and services to achieve this.

As a family-oriented dental practice, we aim to make every visit fun-filled and educational while closely monitoring the development of your child’s teeth and jaws. Our friendly paediatric dentist in Oakleigh welcomes kids and adolescents with a warm smile, using interactive methods to create a positive environment they will enjoy.


When should my child first visit the dentist?

Our children’s dentist in Oakleigh South recommends to have the first dental visit by age one, or within six months after your child’s first tooth erupts.

What happens during the first dental visit?
During the first visit, we’ll familiarise your child with the team, the dentists and the environment in our dental centre. Paediatric dentistry at our Oakleigh South clinic aims to make children comfortable so they can associate dental visits with a fun and exciting experience. At the same time, we’ll also educate you as a parent on how to manage your child’s developing gums and teeth.
How often should my child visit a paediatric dentist in Oakleigh?
Like adults, children should see their dentist every six months. This consistency results in improved comfort and confidence during dental visits, and it can help our dentist closely monitor the growth and development of the teeth. We can provide early intervention with our broad options for kids’ dental treatments if abnormalities are identified.
How should I take care of my child's teeth?

Before the teeth erupt, use clean gauze to gently wipe the gums. Once the teeth start to come through, brush them with a baby toothbrush and a smear of children’s toothpaste to keep them strong and healthy.

My child is scared of the dentist. What can you do?
Our Specialist Paediatric Dentist in Oakleigh has a calm and relaxing manner that children love but in addition, she is also experienced in the latest sedative dentistry techniques to keep your children relaxed while performing dental treatments. These include happy gas and even general anaesthesia for more complex and extensive procedures.
