Clifton Hill Dental
Dr Nick Malamas

Do you treat children?

We warmly welcome children to our Clifton Hill dental practice from their very first visit. Children should see the dentist for the first time between age six months and one year to help them acclimate to the dental clinic environment and to monitor their development and growth.

Our oral health therapist is particularly equipped to demonstrate proper oral care for children, coach parents in looking after their children’s smiles and discuss proper nutrition to bolster healthy growth and healthy smiles.

At your little one’s first dental visit, we will focus on familiarising him or her with the dental clinic and the team. We speak to children using kid-friendly language, let them hold the mirror to look at their teeth and have a look if they cooperate.

Once your child develops and grows, we will incorporate preventive dental treatments such as check-ups and cleans, bitewing x-rays, fluoride application and fissure sealants to protect their smiles.

Even though baby teeth eventually fall out, they are an essential part of your child’s development and maintain space and alignment for permanent teeth. This is why maintaining their health is essential to your child’s oral health.

If it’s time for your child’s first visit to the dental clinic, we invite you to call and arrange a booking. We provide convenient appointments on evenings and Saturdays to accommodate busy parents.
