  • X-rays
  • Filling of cavities and extractions
  • Applying decay preventing sealants to pits and fissures of teeth
  • Teach and motivate children about looking after their teeth, and also help educate parents in preventative care
  • Trauma or accident issues involving children's teeth
  • Cracked or chipped teeth needing crowns
  • Orthodontic assessments and referrals
  • Wisdom teeth assessments, extractions and referrals
  • We bulk bill for the Medicare Child Dental Scheme, no gap

Simple steps to protect your children's teeth:

  1. Remember the 5:2 Rule: Only have 5 meals a day (breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner) with water between meals. This helps the teeth naturally fight the effects of sugar and acid on the teeth. Remember it's the number of times teeth are exposed to sweet, sticky & acid foods during the day that is important, not the amount consumed.
  2. Clean teeth 2 times a day with Fluoride toothpaste. Preferably parents should clean the teeth of very young children (babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers) and supervise older (primary school) children.
