Children’s check ups

Regular dental check-ups for children are important to develop good dental health habits and prevent future dental problems. In fact, we encourage our youngest patients to become familiar with the dental setting from as early as two years old. These examinations are done using a knee-to-knee approach, so they are close to you and comfortable the whole time.

These check ups will:

  • Enable children to become familiar with the dental setting, dental professionals and chair

  • Support early detection of tooth decay or any dental conditions

  • Allow dental professionals to give advice on diet habits and good brushing techniques
