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 gets their teeth checked.

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 in more 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 checkup. You may be surprised to discover that by the age of three, all children will have 20 of their primary teeth. And baby teeth need to be healthy so that their adult teeth are formed healthy too.
