Our team of caring dentists and hygienists believe that good oral hygiene is fundamental for all ages. We’ll try to make the experience memorable for your child and to reinforce the important teachings about dental care that you have passed down.
At Bright Smile Dental Clinic, we understand that a child’s first dental visit marks a milestone in his or her life. So, we strive to make the experience as enjoyable as possible for both the child and their parents.
Children’s first teeth appear around six months of age, but we do not recommend their first dental appointment until they are two years old. However, before your children turn two, feel welcome bringing them to your own appointments at Bright Smile Dental Clinic. This will give them a chance to become familiar with our office and what happens during an appointment.
Our staff is committed to helping parents guide their children towards establishing good oral hygiene habits from a young age.
During the visit, our team will work with your child to ensure they are comfortable in the chair, and that they understand the importance of brushing, flossing, and caring for their teeth. Our dentists will also provide helpful tips and advice on caring for your child’s teeth, as well as show them how to correctly brush and floss.
Children can receive cleanings and check-ups at our clinic. We will help them learn to brush and floss correctly to keep their teeth healthy.
We may also recommend treatments such as fluoride therapy to strengthen teeth, fissure sealants to prevent cavities, and dental restorations (fillings) to repair tooth decay.
We also offer the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS). This scheme provides capped benefit entitlements of up to a thousand dollars per child over a two-year period for basic dental services for children aged 2-17 years old.
You can contact Medicare or Centrelink to check the eligibility of your child. Feel free to contact our clinic to find out more about this scheme. Our friendly team is always on hand to answer any questions and help you access to this Scheme.
