Children's Dentistry

With early dental visits, you can help your children create good oral care habits at a young age that can benefit them for the rest of their lives. Early dental visits also offer you the opportunity to help your children develop a positive relationship with the dentist, which may make them more likely to seek dental care as they grow into adulthood. 

Finding the right dentist is an important part of the process. However, once you find a dentist who you trust with your child’s dental care, you can work together with them to address any dental issues your child experiences as they grow. A children’s dentist can also help teach your child how to keep their teeth clean and well-cared for at home, so they can enjoy a healthy smile for years to come. 

At Bayview Dental Centre, we enjoy being a trusted family dentist, treating both children and adults, and we would love to help your child with his or her dental care. Our friendly, empathetic dental team look forward to welcoming your little one into our dental practice.

Your Child’s First Visit to Bayview Dental Centre

When your child visits Bayview Dental Centre in Helensvale or Runaway Bay for the first time, they will receive a warm welcome from our friendly team and knowledgeable dentist. We do our best to make every child’s first visit enjoyable and comfortable so that they want to return for their next appointment. As a parent, we encourage you to do the same, creating a sense of excitement around this important milestone in your child’s life. 

During your child’s first visit, we will carefully examine their teeth and gums to make sure they are healthy and strong. Our dental exams are gentle but thorough. If we notice any dental issues during the exam, our experienced dental team will develop a treatment plan with you and your child to address the issues.

To make their visit as stress-free as possible, we provide an entertaining kids’ corner in our practice, and we have Netflix ready to go as soon as our patients sit down in the dental chair. We want your child to leave Bayview Dental Centre happy and excited about keeping their teeth healthy. 

Paying for Your Child’s Dental Care

We want all children to enjoy beautiful smiles and excellent oral health. That’s why we accept a variety of insurances and a range of payment options to help parents afford top-notch dental care for their children. 

In our practice, we can also help some patients reduce costs with the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS). Eligible children aged between 2-17 can receive dental benefits through this program to help cover the costs of some basic dental services. We invite you to call us with any questions about this program or your child's eligibility.
