Dental hygiene education starts from a young age
Pimpama Dental is a family-friendly practice that provides professional oral health care for everyone, including children.
Our dentists believe dental hygiene education should start from a young age and always do their best to make your little one’s dental appointments comfortable and stress-free.
We give your children the preventative tools they need to manage their oral health throughout their lives and always strive to make their visits a positive experience.
Regular dental check-ups can help maintain your child/children’s oral health. It also helps to encourage good dental hygiene practices which they can take with them throughout their lives.
During routine check-ups the dentists at Pimpama Dental will also let you know how your child/children’s teeth are growing. We offer expert advice around orthodontic treatment and take a proactive approach to manage their treatment from a young age.

You may also want to let your child/children accompany you on your regular maintenance visits.
What can I expect from my child/children's first dental appointment?
Our dentists take special care to ensure your child/children’s first visit to the dentist is a positive experience. We want to create a warm, relaxed environment for your little ones to pave the way for future visits to the dentist.
At your child/children’s first visit we will examine their teeth and may even take some x-rays if necessary. We will also teach your children how to look after their teeth and gums to encourage a good dental hygiene routine.
