Start your child on a path to lifelong dental health
A child that learns how to care for their own teeth and gums, will, in most cases, experience fewer dental problems as an adult. But laying the foundation for good habits and effective oral hygiene doesn’t happen easily.
Unfortunately, overlooked or untreated dental conditions may impact your child’s participation in school due to sick days absent. Dental disease may also affect how your child socialises and forms peer relationships, particularly if their health and physical appearance is affected.
At Face & Smile, we understand your child’s dental development needs. Our friendly team is dedicated to providing the best dental care for your growing child.
Children's dental care in Ballarat
Dental therapist and hygienist, Tania Haddon, manages all aspects of Face & Smile’s children’s dental care services. Specially trained to treat children of all ages, Tania is a highly skilled and experienced dental therapist.
Using state-of-the-art equipment, including roof and wall-mounted televisions connected to digital microscopes, parents and children can visualise exactly what’s in the mouth. This allows Tania and her team to better educate and explain what a treatment involves, and offers a positive dental experience for children.
Tania’s primary focus is to teach your child preventative dental care measures. By instilling positive lifelong dental habits, we aim to reduce the likelihood of invasive or costly dental treatments in the future that may be difficult for your child.
Importantly, our team also provide regular orthodontic assessments as your child grows and develops. As a result, we can identify potential dental concerns early which helps to minimise the amount of dental treatment that may be required.
Face & Smile offer sedation dentistry and general anaesthetic options which may simplify multiple stressful visits.
Our aim is to help your child avoid the pain of toothache and develop an enduring positive attitude to their dental health. Importantly, this will sustain the health of one of the most important parts of their body.
