By introducing your child to the dentist from an early age (we recommend from 3 years unless there are any concerns prior), you are helping to ensure the teeth are developing normally, kept clean and are free of cavities. Routine 6 monthly preventative care appointments can ensure that if a concern is found early, treatment required and costs involved can be kept to a minimum. It is our mission to provide a gentle approach, so that each visit is a pleasant one.
We look forward to seeing your kids’ faces light up in our dental office with their beautiful smiles. We build excitement about dental visits and we show kids how important it is to keep those cavity bugs away.
Along with our kid friendly amenities, our Picnic Point Dental Clinic staff are all very positive and happy!
We’ll get your child comfortable under a cozy blanket, hugging his favourite stuffed animal while getting their dental treatment.
In addition, we use techniques and technology that allows us to perform pain-free procedures and fillings without any injections at all, and all care is provided with a gentle touch.
So whether your child needs a Mouthguard for sport, fillings or perhaps some Fissure sealants; rest assured that they will have an exceptional experience at Picnic Point Dental Clinic.
Why are my Child’s Baby teeth important
Your Child’s primary teeth, otherwise known as “milk teeth” are vital in the long-term development of your child’s oral health.
- They hold the space for your child’s permanent teeth and guide their eruption into the correct position
- They help with speech development
- They enable your child to eat and chew solid food which in turn help their overall health

When should my child visit the dentist in Panania NSW
Our Panania dentist encourages parents to bring their children to our surgery for dental care before they reach their first birthday or when their first tooth appears. Decay and discolouration can start with a baby’s first tooth which is why it’s crucial that our Panania dentist monitors your child’s oral health.
Dentists are trained to detect the early signs of decay and provide preventive treatments to stop the dental disease from progressing. Premature loss of baby teeth can lead to crowding of the adult teeth and a need for orthodontic dental care.
Young children can sit on their parent’s lap during an examination which doesn’t take long, and our dentist in Panania NSW makes sure to reward them with a sticker.
If you’d like more information about kids dental care or kids dentistry at our Panania clinic in 2213 or would like to book an appointment for your child then please call 02 8806 0137 or book online. We look forward to meeting you and your family at our dentists in Panania NSW.
