Dental Care

Visiting a dentist can be an intimidating experience for many adults – even more so for little ones! At Dentists of Ivanhoe, our Oral Health Therapists take extra care to ensure your child has a fun and enjoyable experience in the dentist’s chair. That way, they can look forward to returning and keeping their teeth in the best possible shape.

In our clinic, we make all our patients feel safe and comfortable. We encourage your little one to accompany you to your appointment so they can be introduced to how mummy or daddy get their teeth checked.

Book your child’s first visit to the dentist today.

How Does Children's Dental Care Differ From Adults?

Children’s dental care differs from an adult’s because a child’s teeth are constantly changing as they grow. They may require an evaluation that is more in depth. While we perform basic exams and treatment on children, for complicated cases, we’ll refer you to one of several excellent paediatric dentists around Melbourne. 

It’s never too early to begin taking your child to the dentist for a routine check-up. You may be surprised to discover that by the age of three, all children will have 20 of their primary teeth. Children’s baby teeth need to be healthy so that their adult teeth are formed healthy too.

Here are some frequently asked questions to get to know us better.

A paediatric dentist is a fully qualified professional who completes an additional full-time postgraduate course in paediatric dentistry. They are trained in child growth, psychological development, and the impact of childhood illnesses on oral health. Our dentists handle general dentistry, but for complex cases involving children, we refer you to a specialised paediatric dentist.

As a parent, your involvement in your child’s oral hygiene will play a massive part in the future of their oral health as they develop good oral care habits. You can help by teaching them how to properly use a toothbrush, limit their sugar intake, make sure they drink enough water, and replace your child’s toothbrush every three months.
