Children’s Dentist in Kareela and the Sutherland Shire

Looking after your child’s dental health is of the highest importance to us at Kareela Family Dental. Our dentists are highly skilled and have extensive experience in treating children of all ages. We create positive, fun and memorable experiences for your children so they will be excited to come back for future visits!

Too often we hear from our adult patients of the horrible dental experiences they went through and the dental anxiety which has stayed with them throughout their adulthood. We are here to put a STOP to that!

Kareela Family Dental
For Children

We provide a fun and comfortable atmosphere for children, with all our surgeries equipped with ceiling mounted TV’s, mystery prizes and goodie bags! We have laughing gas for the more anxious little ones or for those longer appointments. We have a dedicated children’s play corner stacked with various toys so your kids are completely at ease from the moment they enter.

Our Kareela children’s Dentists also provide treatment under the Child Dental Benefits Scheme.

When can I start bringing my child to Kareela Family Dental?

As soon as your little one has all their baby teeth, we recommend you bring them in for a visit. Our goal at this age is to mould their perspective of the dentist as a fun and positive place so that they’ll be begging you to bring them back! We also establish good oral hygiene habits and dietary messages at this stage to set them up for a lifetime of healthy smiles.

At these visits, we are checking for:

  • Signs of decay/cavities
  • How well they are cleaning and how to improve
  • Missing or extra teeth
  • Spacing of teeth or signs of crowding
  • Airway obstructions and sleep issues
  • Grooves in the teeth and whether they need protecting with fissure sealants

If there’s anything we pick up, we’ll take photos of it and show it to you! All while your little one is relaxed with Peppa Pig or the Wiggles!
