Dentistry for Children at Kedron Dental Centre
When should I bring my child to the dentist?
Generally, children should first commence visiting the dentist when they are 3 years of age to become familiar with the dentist and dental surgery routine, as well as to ensure primary teeth are developing within the normal range and are in sound condition.
Also, it is essential that good dental hygiene is being maintained. The dentist will advise on correct brushing and flossing techniques and diet for your child.
Why should I bring my child to the dentist?
Regular visits are essential for monitoring children’s teeth. Please consult your dentist if you have any queries concerning your child’s teeth. Please do not wait until your child experiences toothache to visit the dentist for the first time.
What can I do at home?
As a parent you are the principal role model for your child’s dietary and oral hygiene habits, so it is vital that you create a healthy routine, set a good example and provide encouragement to maintain good oral health. Baby or primary teeth are very important and regular checks will monitor any defects or decay as well as assess the need for further intervention.

Kedron Dental Centre accepts the Child dental benefit scheme.
If your child is eligible you will receive a letter from Medicare going into detail about the amount that can be claimed – please bring this letter with you at your child’s appointment.
