We love caring for kids!
Geelong Smile Studio is your family dentist. We are acutely aware that early childhood experiences have a profound effect on future adult dental behaviours (just ask Mum and Dad if this is true!).
It is for this reason that our primary aim when caring for kids is to make the visit as much fun as it can be.
We will be extremely thorough in explaining what we are about to do, using language appropriate for the age of the child. It is not until we feel confident that your child is at ease, that we will commence an assessment.
We will play games, provide rewards and attempt to make the visit as much fun as it can be.
We have found that with dentistry for children, the earlier we see the kids, the better chance we have to educate and prevent problems.
The ideal age to introduce kids to our practice is two to four years of age.
We believe preventing problems is the best way to treat children. Our preventive program provides oral hygiene instruction and coaching, as well as fissure sealants and fluoride treatments where necessary. Our dentists work with dental therapists to provide the very best in dental care for your children.
When restorations and extractions are required, we know the most important thing is that your child is comfortable. We utilise great communication, great techniques, nitrous oxide or "happy gas" and have access to the hospital when sedation is required.
