We would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to one of our wonderful services ‘Sensational Days at Kiddies Dental Care’. This service has been designed with the needs of our anxious patients aged 5 years and older in mind. 

Our clinician may have noticed that your child could benefit from desensitisation to ensure future dental visits are more comfortable, and to encourage feelings of confidence and safety whilst in the dental environment. The best way to improve confidence is with frequent exposure, which is why we are offering desensitisation appointments. 

Desensitisation allows the patient to become familiar with the environment, staff, equipment, sensations and tastes. The frequency of the appointments and goals will depend on each individual child and can be discussed with our Oral Health Therapist, Carlee.

The desensitisation process begins with a pre-appointment phone consultation to discuss the needs of your child, their concerns and past dental experiences. We can then make a plan to see your child for their first appointment. Visit one will be dependent on your child and their confidence levels, and at this appointment we will usually develop an understanding of how many visits will be required to achieve the goals that we set. Goals set are individual to each child and may include sitting in the dental chair alone, having a clean and polish or any other dental treatment required.

Our main aim with desensitisation is to promote positive and healthy dental experiences that your child can carry on throughout their lifetime. 

Take a look around our relaxed and calm environment

Our environment can be adapted to our patients, which is why we offer an extensive phone consultation prior to the initial appointment. This can include more natural lighting options, music playing and even advising parents to bring items that may make them feel more comfortable.

Our aim to create a stress-free experience for both parents and children including the following modifications:

Quiet clinics with limited staff which helps to create a more relaxed environment for your child. Our goal is to prevent sensory overload, that may otherwise be experienced within a traditional dental visit.

Did you know that waiting to be seen can cause the most anxiety? Reduced waiting times help prevent anxiety for your child and for you, while waiting to be seen.

Longer appointment times, enabling our staff to take things slowly and for the patients to explore and become comfortable with the environment.

A selection of sensory products such as fidgets and weighted items are available to help create comfort or distraction while treatments are taking place.

Book your child in to see a dentist who cares

There’s no need to have a referral. We treat children from when their first tooth erupts until 16 years of age.
