We aim to build upon positive and happy experiences with our patients. With the services and expertise available today, children’s dentistry can and should be delivered in a positive and comfortable manner.
Dental treatment is viewed by many people, especially those that have had negative experiences in the past, as a necessity that has to be tolerated. Children, who have never visited a dentist before, may be frightened because of comments by other children or sometimes by sensing a nervous parent’s anxiety. It is a wonderful reward when we are able to change this perspective into a positive one, and build on a healthy attitude towards dental care that can be carried throughout life.
Prior to the First Visit, you will receive by mail a Welcome Pack. This provides general information regarding what to expect from your child’s visit to kinderdental and also helpful tips and hints. Where time constraints exist such as urgent appointments, this may be sent via email.
At the First Visit, a comprehensive oral examination is conducted. Every child responds to new environments differently. We expertly assess the ability of your child to confidently accept dental care. Some very young children jump into our dental chairs and are mesmerised by the built-in television, whilst others may be frightened of new surroundings. For this reason dental treatment, unless of an urgent nature, is usually deferred to subsequent visits.
If treatment is required, the reasons why this is necessary and how care can be delivered will be discussed with you in detail. A fully costed and itemised treatment plan will be provided.
