The children dentistry is completely different from adult dental care. The children dentistry depends on the child’s age, cognitive development, and personality type. We always advise all parents to bring their kids to the clinic at the age of two. The kids should foster good oral hygiene from a young age.
The Australian Government covers the medical expenses for about 3 million children aged 2 to 17. Now, this is something to smile about Visit our clinic to know more information about this scheme.

If your tooth is damaged or decayed and can‘t be repaired with a filling or crown first, your dentist may decide to remove (extract) the tooth as a last resort. When your tooth can‘t be repaired, tooth removal may be the best option for you.
If you haven’t been to the dentist in several years, there’s a good chance you may have one or two cavities that require attention.
Expect the first appointment to be short and informal, more of a meet-and-greet for your child and the dentist. As for inspecting your tot’s teeth, the dentist will check for decay and take a look at your child’s gums, jaw and bite.
Toddler’s teeth need cleaning twice a day – in the morning and before bed. Use a small, soft toothbrush designed for children under two years. Just use water on the toothbrush until your child is 18 months old, unless a dentist tells you otherwise.
From ages 2-5, a pea-sized amount of fluoride-free, kid-safe toothpaste is recommended. Your child will need help brushing and you should remind them to spit out the toothpaste. Guide your child on proper brushing techniques to prevent cavities.
