Children's Dentist on the Sunshine Coast

Children’s dentistry is very important – as your child develops, both their ‘milk’ or ‘baby teeth’ and ‘adult’ teeth need to be properly cared for. That’s why, at Buderim Dental Surgery, we make it our priority to ensure your child not only receives the proper care their teeth need, but also that each visit to the dentist is fun, engaging, and comfortable!

Serving patients across Buderim and the Sunshine Coast, we truly believe in making your child’s dental appointment simple, easy, and as fun for them as possible. We want to educate them on the importance of oral hygiene, and help make caring for their teeth easier for you both. Our children’s dentist understands how anxiety-inducing a visit to the dentist can be, and as natural as this phenomenon is, our dentist works hard to ensure your child enjoys their visit to our dental practice.

Affordable Children's Dentistry

Keep your child’s teeth in great condition and minimise serious dental work later in life. We make your child’s visit fun and FREE (Bulk Billed Service – no out-of-pocket expenses).

Why Your Child Should Visit the Dentist

The idea of a trip to the dentist is not always an exciting prospect for children. We understand why – they have seen their parents or peers perhaps experience stress, pain, and discomfort during their own dental appointments, so it only makes sense that a child might follow suit! But at Buderim Dental Surgery, we want to help change this perspective for the better.

Why should your child visit our children’s dentist? Because there are several advantages to doing so:

We truly believe in making your child’s dental appointment simple, easy, and as exciting for them as possible by educating them on the importance of oral hygiene while also helping parents better understand how important it is to seek treatment when issues arise. That is why we’re proud to say that no matter what issues your child may have, our children’s dentist has the ability to fix them.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Children's Dentistry

How often you should schedule dental visits depends on many factors, including your child's age. It is recommended that children visit the dentist twice a year for their first check-up at age one, and then continue to visit twice yearly until they turn three. From there, children should see the dentist once every six months up until they are 18 years old. Additional visits can be made if required, to address common issues like cavities or growing issues.

At Buderim Dental Surgery, we recommend seeing our children's dentist about every six months as well!

Many parents are wary of bringing their children for their first check up because they're afraid the trip will be too traumatic for them, but we encourage you to remember that even very young children can learn to love coming to see us!

We recommend taking time before the appointment to get your child familiar with the local area and let them know what fun activities such as watching videos and playing games they can participate in during the appointment. Giving them an idea of what to expect helps ease anxiety and makes everyone feel more comfortable during their dental visit.

It is important to bring any medical history or specific information about your child that you think might be relevant. Children are not required to have an examination before their treatment, so if you do feel there are any health concerns it is best to let our children's dentist know ahead of time so they can take this into consideration when planning treatment.

If your child has seen another dentist in the past it is also helpful for them to have all their records on hand.

The prices of dental treatments vary depending on the treatment itself and many other factors. Our pricing estimates offered during initial consultations are an approximation, but if you would like to know the specific cost of a particular treatment, you are welcome to call us or come in.
