Give your children the best head start

Great oral health begins the moment your children are born. By introducing children to these concepts early on, parents and dentists can give them the best start to their life of oral care..

  • Start wiping your child’s gums with a damp cloth from infancy to protect their new teeth from bacteria.
  • Diligent home care will teach children the fundamentals of brushing, flossing and oral health.
  • From the age of three, children will also benefit from monthly check-ups at our Caulfield dentist.

General check-ups

Fixed check-ups give us a chance to check gum health and ensure teeth are cavity-free. Beyond this, your child’s teeth and facial structure will develop rapidly in their early childhood years. With regular appointments, our dentists can identify irregularities and prevent more complex treatments down the line.

  • General check-ups are a great way to get to know the dentist and prevent dental phobia.
  • Hawthorn Road Family Dental provides a comforting environment for all patients, especially younger children.

Dental fillings for kids

Cavities are often more common in children, especially when they have bad brushing habits. If your child is complaining of soreness or sensitivity to hot or cold foods, they may have cavities. Fillings are a safe and fast dental procedure:

  1. The child is placed under general anaesthetic and the plaque is removed.
  2. Our dentists fill the empty cavity, preventing further infection.
  3. We then provide advice on caring for your child after general anaesthetic.

Dietary and oral health advice

A large part of oral health comes from education children on healthy diets and best practices. We encourage children and their parents to follow a healthy diet that is low in sugar to maintain strong and healthy teeth. Our professional children's dentist will also educate parents on:

  • Oral hygiene
  • Cavity prevention
  • Care routines

We also offer education on treatments such as check-ups, cleaning and fissure sealants. Fissure sealant involves coating your children’s teeth to protect them from bacteria.

Child dental benefit schedule

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule is a program that provides eligible children and teenagers aged between 2 and 17 with up to $1000 for basic dental services.

  • The program is capped over two consecutive calendar years.
  • Eligible families will receive a letter from the Federal Government to confirm eligibility.
  • If your child is eligible, call our children’s dentists to book an appointment.

From children to adults, Hawthorn Road Family Dental caters for everyone. For expert advice and quality dental treatment with the care and compassion your family deserves, contact us to make an appointment.
