At Terrigal Dental, we believe that dental care starts in the womb. We help expectant mothers understand the relation between their dental hygiene and that of their babies. We recommend that children first see a dentist when their first tooth comes in, or by their first birthday. This helps mothers set their children on a path to a lifetime of good dental habits. It is important to us that your child feels calm and confident in the dental chair.
Our team at Terrigal Dental strongly believes that education is a huge part in ensuring children develop good dental habits for life. At your child’s visit, we will check their teeth for any signs of decay as well as show them how to brush and floss their teeth. Our dentists will also discuss diet and educate your child on which foods are good and bad for their teeth.
