Paediatric dentistry is a speciality concerned with all aspects of dental care for young children and adolescents.
Childhood has been identified as the most important period in a person's dental treatment, and it is very important to ensure that the child grows up with a positive attitude towards dental health. We have found that even when children have been to the dentist before, they often do not know what to expect when they come to see us. Our dentists take great care to speak to the patient, not just to the parent, establishing a trust and rapport. Patients' fears are quickly forgotten and visits to the dentist even become fun!
We would prefer to start seeing patients as young as 2 years old. This enables us to check for early signs of disorders, to advise parents on dental health, and to establish good preventive habits at an early stage.
