Meeting all your child’s dental health needs

Recent studies show that an alarming 27% of Australian children aged 5-10 are living with untreated tooth decay. By the time a child then meets a dentist it could be a difficult experience, resulting in children associating dental care with discomfort and pain. It’s important that your child’s first experiences are positive ones, setting a life-time behaviour of seeing the dentist every 6 months, resulting in great dental health care.
