A young boy gets his teeth checked at the dentistChildren's Dentistry

Whether you are bringing your child in for their first ever visit to the dentist or for their regular check-up, you can be assured that your child will receive first class treatment.

Our aim is to make every child’s dental visit as enjoyable as possible. The highly skilled and experienced staff at Robina Dental Group will ensure your child leaves with a smile on his or her face.

Our clinicians adopt a 'Tell, Show, Do' approach which encourages par ticipation by the child in their dental treatment. Intra-oral photographs highlight to the child what is happening in their mouth and reinforce to the child their responsibility in helping to correct any problem that might exist. Desensitisation, sibling modelling, behaviour shaping and positive reinforcement are other techniques employed to cooperatively manage your child's treatment.

Clinicians are highly trained in the early detection of conditions which may need early intervention, such as genetically missing teeth, orthodontic problems or malformed teeth and even extra teeth.

Anxiety is a common challenge for young dental patients and the staff at Robina Dental Group are equipped with a range of treatment options designed to alleviate your child's fear. Happy gas is very well received by children but for those a little more worried, pre-medication with a mild sedative may be the answer. For extreme cases a general anaesthetic can quickly be arranged by our friendly staff.

Dental Trauma

In any case of dental trauma, time is of the essence and treatment must be sought as soon as possible to maximise the chances of successful treatment and retention of teeth. Telephone the surgery immediately and come straight in should your child or any member of the family suffer a dental injury.©
