When to start?
Children’s dentistry is crucial, especially in the early stages of life. It is recommended by the Australian Dental Association that a child’s first dental visit should occur within 6 months of the presence of the first tooth, or by the time a child turns one. It is important to establish a positive relationship from an early age, and early oral examinations help in the detection of the early stages of tooth decay. Early detection is key to maintaining a healthy mouth.
It is important that your child has regular visits to the dentist, as this helps us monitor their growth and development and detect any problems early.

We pride ourselves on being a family friendly practice, and welcome patients of all ages. We have a children’s playroom with an array of toys and a TV. This is a wonderful way for the children to start their dental experience, and helps to put the parents at ease. Scott Makiol has a wealth of experience treating children, and is able to use his calm, caring manner to put even the most anxious patients at ease.
Your children will leave with a goody bag containing a toothbrush, paste, sticker and a balloon.
We have treated generations of families in the Brisbane area, and enjoy seeing patients we have seen as children grow up and bring their own children.
