Paediatric dentistry

A child’s first visit to the dentist should be enjoyable. Children are not born with a natural fear of the dentist, but they can fear the unknown.IMG_6636

Our office makes a special effort to use pleasant, non-frightening, simple words to describe each treatment. We want you and your child to feel at ease from the moment your family arrives at Hill Street Dental. The more you and your child know about the first visit, the better you will feel.

For most children, we recommend a first dental appointment at the age of three years. At this time we assess children’s level of cooperation and how best to talk and work with them. We judge a successful appointment by your child’s willingness to come back again to see us. Of course, if you have concerns about your infant’s teeth, please come for a visit.

Our goal is for your children to get the best early preventive oral care possible. This leads to fewer dental problems and worries later in life.
