At Sunshine Smiles Dental, we’ve created a calm and welcoming environment to help ensure your child’s visit is always a positive experience. All of our dental professionals are highly experienced in treating children, and endeavour to make your time with us as educational and fun as possible.
We offer a full suite of dental services for children, including examinations, scale & cleaning, preventative fissure sealants and fillings, and x-rays. And because we know that kids will always be kids, and accidents do happen, we also tend to broken, chipped or knocked out teeth.
We believe that all children should have access to affordable dental care to create good habits and avoid invasive dental procedures where possible. As such we have discounted our fees ever further for all children under 16 years of age. We also offer bulk billing for children aged 2 – 17 years old who are eligible for the Medicare Child Dental Benefits Scheme.
Ideally, we like to first see children around their 1st birthday, although any time in their pre-primary years is a good time to begin regular dental checkups. This allows us to observe whether their oral development is on track, and provides an opportunity for us to offer ongoing care and brushing tips—many parents are surprised to learn that baby teeth play an important role in correct jaw growth and development, and the way in which they are cared for may prevent the need for later orthodontic treatments.
We provide a non-invasive, child-focused atmosphere at Sunshine Smiles Dental, our dentists are extremely gentle, calm and friendly. We work hard to make your child’s first visit easy and enjoyable, which can considerably help to overcome any fears.
Having an established relationship with a children’s dentist will make every visit more and more comfortable. We recommend that you bring your children into Sunshine Smiles Dental at Coolum Beach every 6 months, as this regularity will help your children become accustomed to the surroundings, sounds, smells, and procedures.
At Sunshine Smiles Dental, we are invested in your child’s long-term dental health, and know that by explaining any issues and possible solutions to you, you will have all the information needed to make the very best decisions for your child.
