Child Dental Phobia
Fear of the unknown is understandable. It is a primitive caution that all children have. Whether it be of the dark or of the dentist, helping children to understand what it is they fear is a part of their development.
We have many young children under our dental care. Our friendly dentists have extensive experience with dealing with children of all ages, getting them accustomed to the tools and the chair.
Often, we start with simple procedures to gain the child’s confidence and if further work is required we gradually incorporate that into their treatment based on their comfort in the dental chair.
For the few children that just cannot be treated chair side, the option of having all the dental treatment undertaken under general anaesthesia can be arranged as a day procedure.
