The introduction to a good healthy mouth starts from an early age, so it is critical that our children start life with good oral healthy habits.
Children of all ages need to be seeing the Dentist regularly, and this starts from the time their first teeth appear in their mouth.
Early visits to the Dentist not only familiarise the child with the dental setting but allow the Dentist to detect any problems early on.
The Dentist and Dental Hygienist will be able to guide parents in regards to oral health of the child and provide valuable oral home care advice.
Dental Visits for Children should be regular and twice a year
During your Child’s First dental Visit they will be assessed by a Brisbane Dentist.
A Number of areas will be assessed:
- Teeth Health
- Gum Health
- Dental Development
- Oral Hygiene and Diet
Our team will provide Oral Hygiene and Diet instruction and advice.
Any recommended treatments or referral for Orthodontics will be discussed.
Familiarity of a regular dental team is important and a valuable investment in the health of your children

At Brisbane Smiles we take great pride in the fact that our child patients love coming to see us. Our Dentist’s are parents themselves and make every effort to make your child’s dental experience a positive (and fun) one. Our Toowong Dentists are able to perform all types of children’s dentistry including complex treatment because we have Nitrous Oxide (happy gas) available in all our surgeries. Of course there are instances where a child may require a General Anaesthetic for treatment. In these circumstances we work with a network of Paediatric Dental Specialists and Oral Maxillo-facial Surgeons to co-ordinate the appropriate care required for the individual child and family. We also work with a Orthodontists when your child is in need of braces and orthodontic advice.
