Port Macquarie Children’s Dentistry
We recommend bringing your child to their first dental appointment by age three, for and introduction and orientation to familiarise them with the dental setting. It is best to ensure that the first dental experience is not an emergency and not associated with pain or tooth ache.
At Hermitage Dental we believe visiting the dental surgery should be presented to your child as a positive experience. We encourage you to reassure your child that we’re here to help them take care of their teeth. It’s important not to prepare your child for the appointment by describing any of your own dental experiences that may be negative.
A regular checkup every six months so that the tooth eruption pattern can be monitored and oral health assessed is recommended. Permanent teeth begin to appear at around six years old and the application of fluoride is beneficial at this time.
