An experienced and caring dental team

Regular dental check-ups are vital for children.

Dentists at Ocean Grove Dental are experienced with young patients and will treat your child with care,  kindness and respect.

They love seeing their little smiles in the practice, and take the time to get to know them and establish a good relationship.

When it comes to children’s dentistry, their philosophy is to prevent problems before they arise, and to diagnose early to allow more minimal and comfortable treatment.

Regular check-ups are the key. They allow dentists to demonstrate oral hygiene techniques, discuss the causes of decay and infection within the mouth, reinforce good habits and pick-up early signs of disease or developmental anomalies.

Preventative measures, such as fissure sealants and fluoride application, can be used to help prevent dental decay.

Occasionally, patients are required to have x-rays to assess dental disease, teeth development, eruption and positioning.

When treatment is required, the team at Ocean Grove Dental are extremely gentle, patient and meticulous.

The caring dentists understand that children are adventurous and can be prone to injuries.

One in three children will suffer dental trauma. Therefore, it’s strongly recommended that children use custom-fitted mouth-guards for prevention in the sporting field.

However, accidents can happen anytime. With five dental practitioners, Ocean Grove Dental is well equipped to prioritise and manage such emergency situations as they arise.

The team will be there to help alleviate pain, reduce risk of infection, and to restore function and aesthetics.

Bulk Billing is available for children aged 2-17 years who are eligible under Medicare’s Child Dental Benefits Schedule. It covers a range of dental services including examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canal treatments and extractions.

Ocean Grove Dental looks forward to chatting with your children and teaching them to love and take pride in their smiles!
