Kids Dentist

Semaphore Dental is for the whole family – we see both big kids and the little ones!

We believe in creating positive experiences early on and encouraging good oral hygiene and dietary habits to see them through their youth right to adulthood.

People often ask when they should bring their child in for their first visit. We recommend that their first visit should be when they are about 2 years old; or prior to that if you have any concerns.

Our approach is treating the person, not just the mouth. Check-ups are very important early on for detecting any cavities and other factors such as airway issues that may affect the development of the upper and lower jaws.

We have an Oral Health Therapist in the team whose care is focussed on patients under the age of 18. Your child may be eligible to be seen under Medicare’s Child Dental Benefits Scheme (CDBS) where treatment is subsidised. To find out more, please feel free to contact us.

We see children for:

Orthodontic assessments and early orthodontic intervention
Airway assessment
Tongue and lip ties
Orthodontic treatment
Cleans and fluoride
Oral Hygiene Instruction
Fissure Sealants

Our practice is equipped with Nitrous Oxide (Happy Gas) for those children that are feeling anxious about their dental treatment
