Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, our friendly Bayview Dental Centre team would love to see your entire family in our Runaway Bay or Helensvale locations. We enjoy being a trusted family dentist for patients in our neighbourhood and surrounding communities. As a family-friendly dental practice, we are equipped to treat all your loved ones—from your oldest family member to your youngest child.
As a dental practice that caters to families, we can provide all the dental services your family needs under one roof. That makes dental care more convenient for most families. Many parents also enjoy receiving their dental care from the same dental team who cares for their children and vice versa. You can provide your child with a great role model for oral health when you begin bringing them along for dental visits at a young age, and we encourage you to do so.
The most common dental problems in children are all preventable and treatable. With regular brushing and flossing, check-ups with the dentist, and a balanced diet, you can help your child avoid tooth decay, cavities, and periodontal disease. If any of these issues arise, they can be filled or treated to make sure that your child’s teeth stay healthy.
Children should make their first dental appointment as soon as their first tooth begins to show or no later than one year of age, according to the Australian Dental Association.
At your child’s first dental appointment, they’ll have a fun and friendly experience. Feeling comfortable is our priority. During your child’s initial dental visit, one of our experienced dentists may check their teeth, gums, jaw, and bite to see how they are growing and developing. Depending on your child’s age, a gentle cleaning may also be done, where the dentist will polish their teeth and remove any plaque, tartar, or stains. Additionally, x-rays may be taken if needed.
