Our General Recommendations

Poor oral hygiene affects more than just your mouth. 

Proper oral hygiene and a well-balanced diet are a crucial part of preventing oral health problems. 

Children are prone to do their own thing when advised on health and hygiene, however. As such, regular checkups with a professional can help impart the right dental advice, making kids more likely to floss and brush twice a day.

Inferior brushing and flossing habits can also lead to a wide range of health issues, making regular dental check ups for children an essential part of long-term health.


Our dentists are members of reputable dental associations, including the Australian Dental Association WA (ADAWA) and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). We are also accredited by QIP, meaning our practice adheres to industry guidelines and regulations.

We accept all health funds, claimable on the spot for your convenience. We are preferred providers with HBF, HCF, CBHS and NIB, meaning you can maximise your rebate.

We also provide interest free payment plan options via The Tooth Market’s Fund My Dental. We also participate in government aided programs such as the Child Dental Benefits Scheme and provide top quality treatment for Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) card holders.

What is paediatric dentistry?

Paediatric dentistry specialises in the oral health of children from infancy through the teen years. It focuses on the unique dental issues children face and provides both preventive and therapeutic oral health care solutions.

Why is a paediatric dentist different from a general dentist?

A paediatric dentist undergoes additional training to meet the specific needs of children, including those with special health care needs. Their offices are often designed to be child-friendly, and their approach is tailored to be gentle and communicative to make dental visits less intimidating for children.

When should my child first visit a paediatric dentist?

The Australian Dental Association recommends that children have their first dental visit when their first tooth appears, or by their first birthday. Early visits are crucial for preventing dental problems and for advising parents on proper oral hygiene for their children.

How often should my child see the paediatric dentist?

Regular dental visits are recommended every six months to ensure optimal oral health. 

What happens during the first dental appointment?

The initial visit is generally brief and involves little treatment. It's an opportunity for your child to meet the dentist in a non-threatening way, for parents to learn about child-specific dental care, and to identify any early signs of dental issues.

How can I prepare my child for their dental visit?

Familiarise your child with the concept of visiting the dentist through positive conversations, children’s books about dental visits, or role-playing at home. Ensure you present the visit as a positive and necessary part of staying healthy.


How can I help my child avoid cavities?

Encourage brushing with fluoride toothpaste twice daily, flossing, limiting sugary foods and drinks, and maintaining regular dental check-ups. Education on proper oral hygiene from a young age is key to preventing cavities.

What should I do in a dental emergency?

In case of a dental emergency, such as a tooth being knocked out or a severe toothache, contact your paediatric dentist immediately. We offer emergency dentist services that provide advice on immediate actions and can make arrangements for urgent care.
