CHILDREN’S DENTIST

One of our greatest passions at Dental Hub Geelong is helping children of all ages experience optimal dental health. Our friendly team have extensive experience caring for toddlers, kids and teens, and know how to communicate with kids making every visit a positive one!

What to Expect

It’s a good idea to talk to your child about their first dental visit, in words that they can understand. The goal for your child is to have an enjoyable painless experience when visiting the dentist-which is what we provide!

You also may want to find a library book about a child’s first dental visit. The Berenstain Bears Visit the Dentist and Show Me Your Smile!: A Visit to the Dentist (Dora the Explorer) are two great choices. There are also some “Visit the Dentist” apps available on the App Store and Google Play.

Be sure to stay positive with your child when speaking about their dental visit. Let your child know that the dentist will be counting their teeth, and helping them be able to eat the foods they love. together we want your child to have a good experience in our Geelong dental practice – so if you are anxious about the dentist yourself, its a great idea to find another family member to attend with them.

If your child has a favourite stuffed animal, toy or blanket, feel free to bring it with you if it will provide that extra measure of security and comfort for your child. Emotional statements – or promising them gifts or Maccas, is not very successful.  But kids usually respond well to the amazing colourful stickers that we give them for good behaviours.

What Happens at the First Visit?

We want your child’s first experience with the dentist to be as positive and pleasant as possible. After all, we want your child to look forward to future visits here at Dental Hub Geelong! Our dentists have a great deal of experience providing dental care for children of all ages.

The best age for your child to visit the dentist for the first time is about 2. We will ask you to provide information about your child’s complete medical and dental history up to that point. We will discuss your child’s snacking and drink habits or initial formation of their teeth.

Here’s what you can expect next:
