Child-Friendly Dental Practice

At Azura, we provide personalised dental care for the whole family, and we especially love treating children. We are a child-friendly dental surgery dedicated to creating a fun, positive experience for children to ensure good dental health from a young age.

We believe that the dental care we provide for your children today will influence their oral health in the future. When we care for children at Azura, we focus on preventative dentistry, education and awareness to help them develop great lifelong dental habits. Our family-friendly dental practice is equipped with the latest technology and is designed to make people feel safe and relaxed.

As parents ourselves, we know that taking young children to the dentist can be challenging and, at times, overwhelming. We have lots of tips and tricks to help parents and guardians prepare for their child’s appointment. During the appointment, our dentists and hygienists will let your child set the pace of their treatment, helping to make them feel safe and comfortable in the dental surgery.

Dental Services for Children

We provide a comprehensive range of dental services for children of all ages, from infants to teens. Our children’s treatments include everything from general hygiene and check-ups, sports mouthguards, teeth straightening, fillings, emergency care and everything in between.

Regular dental check-ups in the early years are essential for monitoring your child’s oral health and development. Through these visits, we can help children develop good dental care habits and ensure a positive association with the dentist for life. We focus on a preventative dental treatment plan for children to protect the primary teeth and avoid the premature loss of baby teeth due to decay.

We may recommend treatments such as fluoride and sealants to help protect and strengthen your child’s teeth.

Our staff are highly trained, and our child-friendly practice is equipped with the latest technology to ensure we can provide safe and easy treatment for children. Our dentists and our dental hygienists treat every child with care and understanding, and most importantly, we always make sure a trip to the dentist is fun!

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule is accepted at Azura. Under this scheme, Medicare will cover approximately $1,000 over two calendar years for basic dental services.

Check your eligibility on the Medicare website. In addition to this, we also provide No Gap Check-ups, Cleans, and X-Rays to all patients under the age of 21 with private health cover

Frequently asked questions

The Australian Dental Association (ADA) recommends that a child should see a dentist for the first time around their first birthday or within six months after their first tooth erupts, whichever comes first. This early visit allows the dentist to monitor the child's dental development and provide guidance on oral care practices.
Regular dental visits are essential for children to maintain good oral health. Dentists can identify and address any potential dental issues early on, such as tooth decay or improper tooth alignment. They also provide valuable guidance on proper oral hygiene practices, including brushing, flossing, and a healthy diet, to prevent dental problems in the future.
During the first dental visit, the dentist will perform a thorough examination of your child's mouth, gums, and teeth. They will check for any signs of decay, assess oral development, and discuss proper oral care techniques. The dentist may if necessary provide advice on teething, pacifier use, and thumb sucking.
Dental x-rays are performed when necessary and appropriate. However, we recommend children are aged between four to six years before they have their first dental x-ray.
To prepare your child for their first visit to the dentist, we recommend talking to them about what will happen at the dentist and why good oral health is important. Engaging in role-playing activities where they can pretend to be the patient, dentist, or parent can be helpful. Additionally, allowing them to use a toothbrush to clean their doll or teddy bear's teeth can make the experience more familiar. Once you arrive at our clinic, our dental team has plenty of tricks up their sleeves to make your little one excited about the dentist.
It's perfectly okay if your child's first visit to the dentist doesn't go as planned. If your child is feeling uncomfortable, anxious, or unsafe during their treatment, we will stop and reschedule. Our team can provide you with tips on what to say and do with your child leading up to the new appointment to help ensure their next visit is a success. We understand that each child is unique, and we are committed to creating a positive and comfortable dental experience for every patient.
