Western Smiles Dental Care

What should I expect at my child's first dental visit?

Your child’s dentist in Mirrabooka likes to see children at around two years old.

Additionally, we believe that a child's first dental visit should be fun. This initial visit should be about building trust and helping them feel comfortable with the dentist.

We may count teeth, give them a ride in the dental chair, and talk about their oral health in age-appropriate language. We believe that building trust early may prevent anxiety later. We can also introduce your child to Benji, our therapy dog. Benji helps patients feel relaxed and at ease during dental checkups and procedures.

As your child ages and becomes more comfortable in the dental clinic, we will add needed treatments, which may include but are not limited to:

  • Comprehensive dental checkups
  • Professional teeth cleans
  • Fluoride treatments
  • Fissure sealants
  • Tooth-coloured fillings
  • Emergency dentistry

Following checkups and teeth cleans, a member of our team shares all findings with you. And we are always available to answer your questions and address your concerns. Our dentist and team understand that your child’s healthy smile is a group effort!
