Children Dentistry

Friendly Dentist for Children

As a family oriented dental clinic, Apollo Family Dental offers thorough dental care for children throughout each phase of their development. We understand that visiting the dentist can cause anxiety for children. Our dentists adopt a friendly attitude and a warm approach, making children feel comfortable while receiving the dental care they need. The unique approach of our dentist helps kids to feel at ease while teaching them good dental habits from an early age.

Our Dental Services for Children

Our dentist can provide a range of dental treatments for children. This includes general check-ups and cleans, fissure sealants, dental fillings, dental x-rays, tooth extractions and root canals if required.

During a check-up for a child, our dentist will look at how the jaw has developed, determine the presence of any cavities, and educate your child on good dental habits.

Helping Children to Improve Dental Habits

Our dentist can help your child to develop healthy dental habits, including regular cleaning, flossing and limiting consumption of sugar. These lessons will serve them well later in life and help them look after their teeth and gums.

Treating children has taught our dentist a lot about their dental habits and how to assess the growth and development of children’s teeth. This allows us to identify any potential complications early on, such as crooked teeth and signs of premature decay. This information can then be used to correct the problem and provide quality dental care, using equipment and techniques specifically tailored for children.

Bulk Billing Available

Our dentist can bulk bill eligible patients between the ages of 2-17 through the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS). These benefits ($1000) cover eligible children for basic dental treatment for two years so they can be treated as soon as possible.

Please be aware that our bulk billing does not cover cosmetic dental treatments. It also does not include dental work performed outside of a qualified dental clinic, including hospital operating theatres. Speak to one of our staff members to learn more.
