Choosing a dentist for your kids? Here’s why you should choose KIDS
As parents, you want the best for your children. And when it comes to dental care, we think it’s best to choose a practice that delivers high quality treatment tailored to the specific needs of children and teenagers, and makes the whole experience fun. A practice like KIDS.
Our friendly, gentle and experienced dentists provide all aspects of children’s dentistry services, including preventative and pre-orthodontics. They care for children from infancy through to adolescence, keeping your child’s teeth, gums and mouth healthy through each stage of development. Crucially, our children’s dentists also have an in-depth understanding of the management of orofacial problems related to medical, behavioural, developmental and physical issues. At KIDS we spend time treating not only the symptoms, but also the underlying cause.
We take time to involve your child in what’s going on, so that they are not scared of the unknown. We use specially designed, scaled down equipment, suitable for even the tiniest mouth, and the whole team are committed to making the experience of visiting the dentist fun from start to finish.
We’ve worked hard to make our North Mackay practice a stress-free, friendly and entertaining environment for children of all ages. We’ve got iPads and PlayStation activities. With all the rooms providing a colourful environment and our unique Nurture Room for pre and post care and privacy.
We even have our therapy dog Dexter on hand for cuddles and fuss – the perfect distraction for any anxious patient!
Here at KIDS we’re often asked when children should start seeing a dentist. In line with the advice from the Australian Dental Association, we recommend that regular dental check-ups should begin at your child’s first birthday and take place every six months thereafter.
Studies consistently show that cavities are becoming increasingly common in young children, and their prevention can be greatly improved with the establishment of a good oral hygiene routine early on. And where better to start your child’s dental health care than at KIDS, the only purpose-built children’s dental practice in the region? Where your child’s first exam and clean costs just $95.
