Centre Street Dental

At what age should my child first visit the dentist?

We like to see children anytime from two years of age. However, we are happy to see children younger than this should you be concerned about any aspect of their dental health.

Bring Your Children with You

We invite parents to bring their children with them to their own cleans and exams; it helps your little one get used to sights and sounds of a dental clinic. They may look to you to make sure everything seems about right.

Your child starts to develop oral habits at an early age, and this can set the tone for the rest of their life.

No pressure at all! This is why Drs Annie Thompson and Greg Normoyle work together with their fun dental team to make your son's or daughter's experience as fun, pleasing, and stress-free as imaginable. We want your child to want to come to the dentist.

If your precious one is a little shy around strangers, that's ok. We don't rush or hurry things; relationships will build at the pace they need to. 

Still, don't hesitate to call us if you think you are experiencing a dental emergency. These can be very immediate things like a severe tooth pain or bleeding gums, or an injury during sports. We are on your side; we are here to help you and your family at any stage in their oral health development.
