It’s never too early to start taking care of your teeth!
From pregnancy to your child being a teenager, there are so many dental development stages and dental treatment options it can be daunting and baffling for many parents. Parents are often looking for a children’s dentist they can trust throughout the many stages of development.
Your back teeth are more likely to get a cavity than other teeth because they’re full of deep grooves and depressions called pits and fissures. Food and bacteria often get trapped in these grooves and cause tooth decay. In fact, more than 75% of dental decay begins in these pit and fissure areas of the back teeth.
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule was introduced by the Australian Government to provide financial assistance to families and encourage children and teenagers to care for their oral health and to introduce them to preventive care solutions by having regular examinations and hygiene appointments.
At Island Dental, we are with you every step of the way. Your child will receive the best dental education and dental treatments at the right time in their development.
We will also make sure that you, as the parent, always feel in control, armed with all the information, options and advice so that you can give your child the best dental start in life.
Our early dental care includes:
Regular preventive check-ups in a gentle, calm and caring environment
Orthodontics: guiding growing teeth, jaws and bite towards an aligned bite and improved function
A Safe Environment: confidence that your child is safe from infection and disease
A lifetime partner in your child’s dental health
From their first tooth to the perfect smile, Island Dental works hand in hand with you, to make sure that your child gets the very best care and enjoyment out of their time at the dentist.
Together we will give them the perfect foundation for a life long healthy and beautiful smile!
Growth and Development
Every child, their genetics and their growth pattern as well as their preventive needs are different. We work to support your child, and act as their partner to achieve optimal oral health.
This is approached through an understanding that as we go through childhood and become adults, we can often be confronted with environmental and behavioural circumstances that can conspire against the natural and intended growth and development of our face.
In your child’s regular visits, we are not only building their confidence in the dental environment, but also observing changes in their jaw growth, dental development and function. Our staff are specially trained to assess your child’s growth and development and help to correct any issues before they become more complex as adults.

Ever wanted to ‘cheat’ at some of your daily tasks? It’s OK. We’ve all thought about it. Some days you’re short on time but still want to make sure you take care of yourself. You may be wondering if you can skip flossing and just swish some mouthwash around instead. So, can you use mouthwash…
