Making the first visit to the dentist a positive experience for your child is crucial to setting good oral health habits.
Motivating Your Child
You can visit the Smile Solutions Tooth Fairy website where there are educational activities to get your child excited about looking after their teeth. Additionally, to motivate your child for their first visit to the dentist, we highly recommend that you watch our Tooth Fairy video with them. In the video, the Tooth Fairy explains exactly what happens when children first come to the dentist.
Who Will Treat My Child?
At Smile Solutions your child will most be likely seen by a dental hygienist & therapist on their first visit. Therapists have been specifically trained in children’s dentistry and are passionate about caring for children and ensuring that their first visit is enjoyable and fun. A general dentist may also perform your child’s first examination. With our team of over 21 hygienists & therapists and over 40 general dentists, you are assured of finding a clinician your child is comfortable with.
Your hygienist or general dentist will examine your child’s teeth and if they find any seriously concerning issues they will refer them to one of our specialist paediatric dentists.
