As parents ourselves, we know that taking care of your child’s dental health is important, and we’re here to help make it easier for you.
Dental visits are often perceived as painful, intimidating, and frightening for children. The staff at Accolade Dental are equipped to make your child’s dental visit as pleasant as possible. We offer extended visits for children with special needs. Our dentist, oral hygienists and dental therapists are experienced, friendly and will work at your child’s comfort level for their dental check-up. We ensure your child feels comfortable from the moment they enter reception to when they leave.
When should your child visit the dentist?
It is recommended that your child visit the dentist towards the end of their first year or when their teeth have grown in. Visiting the dentist early will prevent greater dental issues from occurring in the future. We endeavor to make your child’s initial visits as fun as possible, so that future dental visits are attended with confidence and full trust in our dental team.
Oral Hygiene for Children
Even though deciduous teeth (or baby teeth) are eventually replaced by permanent teeth, they must still be well-maintained and checked regularly. This will improve habits for healthy foods and good oral care.
Fissure seals are a thin protective layer that covers an area prone to tooth decay. Our dental sealant treatments are for children and adults, but the earlier the better.
Before early cavities become bigger decays, our dentist or dental therapist will clean out the decay and use a colour matching material to restore your tooth. This will save you time and money in the long run.
Do you or your kids play sports regularly? Mouthguards can protect your teeth, soft tissue and jaw from contact-related injuries / accident, which may have a long-term impact on your child’s general health and confidence. Our custom mouthguards come in multiple colours.
We understand that children with special needs require a unique approach when it comes to dental care. Our team of compassionate and experienced dental professionals are here to ensure that your child receives the best possible care in a safe and welcoming environment. Please let us know if your child has special needs when booking the appointment.
At our clinic, we take a comprehensive and individualised approach to dental care for children. We understand that every child is unique and has specific needs and preferences when it comes to dental treatment. Therefore, we work closely with parents and caregivers to develop a personalised treatment plan that meets the unique needs of your child. Our friendly and experienced staff will take the time to answer any questions you may have and make sure your child is comfortable during their visit and leave feeling confident and happy.
We accept the Child Dental Benefit Scheme (CDBS) and all Private Health schemes
