Our Approach to Children’s Dentistry
Its important that children feel comfortable coming to the dentist because regular check ups are a must. By scheduling regular appointments we can monitor growth and pick up any problems before they become more serious.
We encourage parents to ask as many questions as possible to allay any and all concerns that they might have. From thumb sucking to oral hygiene habits, we’re here to help you navigate your child’s evolving dental health needs. We’re here to work with you and your child to maintain a healthy mouth and a sparkling smile.
At dhealth Dentistry we believe in helping children develop a comfortable and fun attitude towards their dental check-ups. For this reason we keep fees at a minimum for children under 18 years of age.
Children’s Dentistry Services
Alongside our general dentistry appointments we also offer services in:
All of these services will be provided with the same commitment to making your child’s trip to the dentist a comfortable and enjoyable one. We believe in a holistic approach to dentistry and we believe your child’s visit should be more about checking their teeth. It should be part of a whole routine that is geared towards creating total wellbeing and health.
