Preventative dental treatment from a young age will help to ensure a lifetime of hassle free oral health. Dr. Davidoff & the Jervis Bay Smiles team is the key to ensuring your child receives adequate attention to identify adverse issues, to provide advice and to introduce your child to painless, modern dental techniques.
We recommend introducing your child to the dentist as early as their first tooth appears, just to perform an overall health assessment as to provide them the best chance at the healthy smile they deserve.
Throughout childhood, regular visits are encouraged to identify and remediate any instances of tooth decay. We'll assess the effectiveness of their dental hygiene routine (such as brushing and flossing) and will provide guidance and instruction if required.
We've found over the years that the earlier a child is introduced to dentistry, the lower their anxiety levels are later in life.
We understand that a dental surgery can be considered a scary place to a child; our staff are capable and well trained in providing a calming experience and ensuring their comfort at all times. Our caring and compassionate approach allows your child the opportunity to enjoy the visit and to look forward to the next one.
Jervis Bay Smiles offers a range of specialised treatment options especially for infants and children. These include identification and remediation of tooth decay, the identification of developmental abnormalities and provision of fluoride treatment, sealants and other procedures which maximise the success of sustained healthy growth of teeth and gums.
