What to Expect

FROM A CHILDREN’S DENTIST VISIT

At Dental on Clarendon, we have a special dental department just for kids and child dentistry. Our specialty children’s dentist, assisting those in South Melbourne, Albert Park, Southbank and surrounds, offers friendly, caring and professional service catering specifically to the needs of children and their growing teeth. Our highly experienced staff perform pain free general dentistry for kids and adults so you can breathe easy knowing that the whole family is in the best possible hands.





Appointments for Kids

To prevent minor dental issues becoming big problems, our children’s dentist recommends bringing your children in for their first check-up before they reach 2 years of age, and subsequently booking in for a consultation every 6 months. This allows our children’s dentist to monitor their oral health and tooth eruption pattern. It’s best if your young one’s first experience occurs at a time before invasive work becomes necessary. Early check-ups make it easier to build a rapport and establish trust with the dentist for future visits.

To keep our patients smiling, we combine the latest pain free technology, more than 20 years of experience and friendly advice for preventative care.

Pain Free Dentistry

The pain free dental technology at our South Melbourne clinic – including The Wand – ensures complete comfort right from the first check-up. The Wand allows us to administer anaesthesia without the pain typically caused by the pressure of the anaesthetic entering the tissue of the gum. The Wand treatment is delivered by our highly qualified practitioners and is safe for the whole family.

Preventative Care

Preventative care is available for all ages and includes a range of maintenance treatments and advice. Our friendly South Melbourne staff will perform preventative treatments like professional teeth cleaning and provide advice for keeping up a good oral health routine. They will even help to educate children about dental care using positive, encouraging language that inspires them to keep up their dental care routine at home.

The First Visit For Kids

We encourage our youngest patients to become familiar with the dental setting from as early as their 1st tooth erupting in the mouth. Coming along to mum and dad’s visit is a great way to start getting your little one comfortable to visiting the dental team – A positive first visit can be the first step toward a lifetime of good dental habits!

The visit would usually start with a ride in the dental chair and counting their teeth, checking the gums and sometimes being able to gently clean their teeth.

1st VISIT TIPS FOR MUMS AND DADS

  • Even very young children are perceptive, and can pick up and react to any anxiety you might have about the upcoming visit.
  • Arrange for a morning appointment if possible. Children are often more positive and receptive.
  • Avoid talking about specific procedures or instruments, as these ideas may confuse or upset your child. Words like “drill,” “injection,” and “needle” are potentially very frightening to a child.
