Children’s Dentistry

Campsie Family Dental is an all-ages clinic. We welcome every member of your family, including children. Our team loves seeing young children come into the practice, learning healthy habits. When you begin your child’s dental care early in life, you won’t have to worry about them developing a fear of the dentist.

Easing Your Child Into Their Dental Visits

Toddler brushing his teethOur rule of thumb is that on the first day your child visits us, we won’t do anything invasive. Whether they’re there for a checkup, filling or another service, we will make it fun for them. We want it to feel like playtime during their first session with us. We’ll get information about their medical and dental history from you. If we locate any potential problems, we’ll discuss our short-term and long-term goals to manage the issues.

Being Patient With Our Paediatric Patients

Children deserve to be children. We don’t expect them to behave like adults when they attend their dental visits. Our entire team wants to make them feel comfortable with us. We’ll get to know them, talk about their likes and dislikes and take our time with them. We understand that a child can find it difficult to hold their mouth open for a longer period. We’ll work patiently with them and never rush them.

Bring Your Kids to Your Dental Checkups

We recommend that you bring your kids in for a checkup around age 6, which is when they start losing their first teeth. You can even bring them in with you to your dental checkups. That way, they can meet our team and become familiar with our clinic environment. If they accompany you, we’ll even give them a quick, no-charge checkup. They’ll receive stickers and positive reinforcement about visiting the dentist.

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon should I start brushing my child’s teeth?

You can start by using some toothpaste on your finger to clean your child’s gums and teeth. As your child gets a bit older, you can use a toothbrush and eventually, your child can learn to brush their own teeth. Consider brushing your teeth alongside your child so they can see that practicing oral hygiene is fun and essential.

What are dental sealants and do children need them?

Dental sealants are painted on the teeth, typically the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. Sealants are used to fill in the grooves in teeth and keep out food particles that can harm tooth enamel and eventually cause cavities. Sealants can help children to keep their teeth strong and reduce cavities. The process is entirely painless. Sealants can last for up to 10 years and can be applied to baby teeth.

Now Accepting the Child Dental Benefits Schedule

We’re pleased to participate with the Medicare Child Dental Benefits Schedule. Through this plan, eligible children can receive up to $1000 in dental care every two years. Your family must currently receive benefits such as the Family Tax Benefit A for your child to participate with the Child Dental Benefits Schedule. If you’re unsure about your child’s eligibility, we’ll let you know which steps to take in order to check it.
