Children’s Dentistry

Maintain your child’s beautiful smile for life!

At Geoff Ross Dental, we understand that your child’s first visit to the dentist may be a daunting and overwhelming experience. This is why we have created a friendly supportive environment in our Melbourne dental clinic to help ease the nerves of our smallest patients. Our dental professionals have young children, and are highly experienced at communicating with youngsters.

The importance of baby teeth

Contrary to popular belief, baby teeth play a significant role in your child’s oral health and the development of their facial structure, bite and adult teeth. At Geoff Ross Dental we have some top tips to help you care for your child’s teeth:

  1. Even if your baby has not developed teeth yet, you can still clean their gums with a soft damp cloth.
  2. Your child should visit our Melbourne dental clinic within the first few months of their teeth developing or by their first birthday – whichever comes first.
  3. Never put your child to bed with a bottle of sweetened drink (milk, juice, cordial etc.) this can lead to baby bottle tooth decay.
  4. Do not brush your young child’s teeth with fluoridated tooth paste – use a pea sized amount of children’s toothpaste.

Geoff Ross Dental located in Melbourne is a great place for your child to form a healthy, happy relationship with the dentist from a young age.
