Carrum Downs Dentist is a Child Friendly Dental Clinic
Posted: May 17, 2018
Visiting the dentist is a necessary part of childhood. The sooner you start taking your child to the dentist, the healthier their mouth will stay throughout their lives. Early dental check-ups for kids can help prevent cavities and tooth decay, which can lead to pain and other medical complications. However, for kid patients, the experience can be a nightmare. At Carrum Downs Dental group we take all the necessary measures to make sure our offices are more enjoyable and comfortable for children, parents and staffs alike. We strive to give your children peace of mind when they visit us in our dental clinic.
Here are some few measures we take to ensure that our dental clinic is a child-friendly dental clinic.
- We Dedicate a Part of Our Waiting Room for Children
Anxiety can kick in when children who are already scared to visit the dentist get into a dental clinic and have nothing else to do but wait in the waiting room. Our waiting room is customised in a way that it will keep your child busy while waiting to see the dentist. It wall play board that children like and have plenty of space to play. We also provide kids with colouring sheets and colour pencils to keep them busy. If they need more distraction while on the chair, we have kids videos on the IPAD too.
- We Teach Kids About Healthy Teeth
Tooth decay is one of the most common dental problem facing children in Australia today. Research has it that 20% of children will have the first cavity before the age of five. Also, 50 to 70 percent of children will have at least one cavity during their grade school years. Thisis mainly attributed to the poor knowledge children have about proper dental hygiene. At Carrum Downs Dental Clinic, our dentist makes learning about the importance of healthy teeth fun to your child. We have some fun games and dental activities children can enjoy while learning at the same time.
- We Involve Both the Parent and the Child
We believe that it’s vital to educate both the child and the parent about the importance of healthy teeth. We encourage parents to accompany their children to the dental clinic since children tend to be more relaxed in the presence of someone they know. We teach the parent how to provide good dental hygiene to the child and also some of the techniques to motivate them to continue with the good habit.
- Our Dentists Make the Difference
