Making a trip to the dentist a positive experience!

For many children, a trip to the dentist can be daunting. At Skye Dental we aim to make all their visits to the dentist as positive as possible! Our dentists are experienced with kids and their unique dental needs. Our staff are welcoming and our practice is bright and happy. We have a variety of tools to help your child feel comfortable; toys, a TV with their favourite show, soft toys, and a prize for after their appointment. 

If your child is particularly nervous, bring them with you to your check-up and clean appointment or perhaps consider booking them in for a trial appointment. They can have a ride in the ‘big blue chair’ and meet their dentist. This often helps kids become familiar with the environment and the noises before having any treatment. Also, you can help your child be comfortable with the dentist by speaking positively about the dentist and making trips to the dentist part of your regular routine (every 6 months or 12 months). No child is too young to start learning about the dentist! You can also arrive slightly early to the appointment to allow your child time to adjust to the sights and sounds and meet our friendly staff. 

To check how much your child has remaining on their CDBS account, or to book an appointment, call our friendly staff on 3823 1896 today.
