Avondale Dental Centre

At what age should my child visit the dentist?

Young girl at dentist | Paediatric Dentistry Avondale AucklandWe welcome our littlest patients beginning at age 2 to 3, but you are always welcome to bring your child to your visits. This helps even very small children become familiar with the dental clinic and our staff.

We take a special interest in paediatric dentistry because developing good dental habits and regular visits can mean a healthier smile as an adult.

Why Bring Your Child to the Dentist

We make early visits fun for kids by encouraging their curiosity and wonder with learning. We demonstrate proper brushing and flossing both for kids in our clinic and in our community. Not only is this essential to educate kids, but it is also fun for our dentists and team. Many of our staff are parents themselves, making them naturals when it comes to working with children of all ages.

We also prioritise communication with parents and discuss what to expect as your child grows.

  • Healthy nutrition
  • Behaviour modification (thumb sucking)
  • Developmental milestones
  • Home dental care

As a family practice, we adjust our treatment to meet your child’s needs and look forward to meeting their kids someday.

Give us a call to arrange your child’s first check-up and clean. We look forward to looking after your entire family.
