Visiting the dentist for the first time is a big step for kids, but taking your child to the dentist doesn’t have to be a stressful time. Our gentle and friendly dental care team makes sure every child’s first experience at the dentist is a fun one. Book a children’s dentistry appointment today to get your child’s experiences at the dentist off to a positive start.
Gentle Children's Dentist Brisbane
If you’re looking for a gentle and experienced children’s dentist in Brisbane, our clinic is conveniently located in the Springfield corridor between Ipswich and Brisbane. Here at Camira Dental, we like to see children for dental examinations from about age 3 onward.
At the first visit, we introduce your child to the dental environment in a non-threatening way. Often the child’s first ride in the dental chair will be whilst seated on mum or dad’s lap who will have a tandem ride.
Phobias around dentistry develop in early childhood, so we take great effort to make the visits fun. Our friendly team rewards children with balloons and stickers at the end of the appointment.
Where needed, we also use Relative Analgesia (Happy Gas) for pain-free treatment. Happy gas is dispensed using masks that are fruit flavoured, producing pleasant smells as the child inhales the nitrous oxide. If necessary, we can offer General Anaesthetic in a day surgery facility. For more challenging and complex procedures, we may refer you to a specialist children’s dentist.
Benefits of Children's Dentistry
Dental education and good dental health habits start at a young age. Children’s dental appointments are beneficial both to the parent and the child. They allow us to discuss any crucial factors affecting dental health, such as teeth brushing and diet.
Our experienced dentists will examine the teeth to ensure they are developing well and in alignment. What’s more, we can give tips on the best toothbrushes, kinds of toothpaste and other dental products to make sure your child’s teeth remain healthy. Prevention is always better than cure, so it’s best to get children’s teeth checked regularly, addressing any issues early on.
As a family-owned and operated dental clinic, we value creating a welcoming and warm environment for patients of all ages. Our experienced children’s dentists and friendly dental assistants are always here to answer any questions you may have.
What to expect on your visit
If you suspect you might need to visit the dentist, whether for a regular check-up or a specific problem, the first step is to give us a call. Our friendly dental assistants can help you with most inquiries, booking you in for a further consultation or treatment.
When you come in, your dentist will have a discussion with you about your needs and propose treatment. At Camira Dental, we take pride in telling the truth about patient needs, never engaging in up-selling.
You’ll get an upfront quote on the full cost of treatment before starting. If needed, it’s possible to prioritise treatment to spread out the cost. We won’t start any treatment without your verbal consent to proceed with the plan.
We use innovative pain-free techniques, providing gentle care. If you have sensitive teeth or a fear of the dentist, don’t hesitate to let our team know. We’ll do our best to make you feel comfortable during your visit.
