Establishing Good Habits Early

At Dentessence, we understand that children of all ages may be nervous about dental appointments, whether it’s their first visit or not. That’s why we welcome children and families in a warm, friendly way to our family-inclusive environment, starting with our fun-tastic kids’ waiting area. Toddlers and young children can play along the sensory wall in the waiting room while other children often enjoy the colouring and counting games on the iPads!

By introducing your child to dental visits from two years of age in a fun and stress-free way, we can introduce the importance of good oral hygiene and its role in looking after our bodies from a young age.

About Your Child’s Dental Visit

We want to help your child start their oral healthcare journey positively. That’s why we tailor each visit to your child’s individual needs.

The recommended age for a child’s first dental visit is two to three years old – however, you are welcome to bring your child earlier, particularly if they have any dental concerns. At two or three years old, your child can interact with their dentist and respond to instructions and praise.

There are many ways we aim to make your child’s first visit comfortable and enjoyable. This considered and thoughtful approach helps to ensure their first dental experience is positive. If possible, schedule this dental visit after routine meal and sleep times so your child is attentive and content. 


Your Children’s Dentistry Questions Answered

It is important to clean and protect your child’s teeth from the moment their first tooth comes through (at six months of age, on average). You can clean these baby teeth with a soft, clean cloth. You may also like to bring your child to your dental appointment or an older sibling’s appointment so they can become familiar with the dental setting.
