At Cotton Tree Dental, we believe that introducing your child to the dentist at an early age (we recommend around 3 years old) will ensure their teeth develop normally, remain clean and free of cavities. Educating children about dental health from a young age will help in developing life-long skills to keep their smile healthy and aid in preventing the need for major work when they are older.
We recommend 6 monthly visits for your child to ensure their oral health is maintained, and if a problem is detected early, treatment and cost involved can be kept to a minimum. We understand there is often nervousness and fears when coming to the dentist, so we work hard to ensure your child has a comfortable and positive experience every visit.
