Children’s Dental Care

Cute child brushing teethA healthy smile in adulthood starts with great preventative dental care at a young age. At Happy Smile Dental we strive to provide an upbeat and comfortable atmosphere from the first encounter your child has in a dental office. Not only do we offer comprehensive children’s dental care, but we also provide amenities and complimentary goodie bags to give your child something to look forward to at each checkup.

We will do everything possible to make sure that your child enjoys their visits with us and can’t wait to return for their next appointment!

How to Keep Your Child’s Smile Healthy

Dental experts and paediatricians recommend that every child have their first dental exam before age 2. The earlier they see a dentist, the more accustomed they become to the dental care experience.

Since most dental problems are preventable, we recommend a checkup every six months. If any issues are noted, we can treat them in a minimally invasive manner to avoid unwanted pain or dental emergencies in the future.

What to Expect at Your Child’s Appointment

We will book about 30 minutes to show your child what it’s like to have their teeth polished, appropriate “pictures” (X-rays) taken and examine their smile. Each child is different, so we’ll work at your son or daughter’s pace.

Be sure to talk about the visit in a positive, upbeat manner. Don’t use any scary words like “shots” or “drills.” You can prepare your child by playing dentist at home, taking turns brushing each other’s teeth and looking into each other’s mouths with a small flashlight.

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule Accepted

Does your family qualify for Medicare? The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) covers routine dental services with benefits resetting every two years. Qualified enrolees between the ages of 2-17 have access to $1,000 in benefits on everything from scale and cleans to fillings.

We bulk bill all dental treatment and process claims straightaway through HICAPS for no gap visits!
