Children

The team at Northern Beaches Family Dental love children! Our highly qualified dental team enjoy making your child's visits fun and educational, with a lot of love and attention.


FIRST VISIT

We recommend children start coming to the dentist at an early age. At around the age of 3, it is a good idea for children to accompany a parent to one of their regular check-ups, so that they may become familiar and comfortable with the dental team and surroundings. Early dental visits may prevent minor problems from becoming major ones, as early decay may be detected and good oral hygiene habits may be taught early.

 

WAITING ROOM ENTERTAINMENT

We have entertainment facilities for children in our waiting room. Our little patients are always so proud to have their artwork on our waiting room 'gallery wall'. There is also a choice of children's TV channels to keep them amused. For our very young patients coming in a pram, the practice and parking have been built with wide corridors, large rooms and ground floor positioning to make an easy and stressful passage for parents and children in prams coming to their appointment.

 

CHILD BENEFITS Dental SCHEDULE

We are happy to see children who are eligible for Medicare's Child Dental Benefits Schedule. Parents pay for the dental services provided on the day after their child's appointment, and then claim their rebate from Medicare. Please let the practice know that your child is eligible for the CDBS at the time an appointment is made.
