Children’s Dentistry in Kinross

We offer children’s dentistry, so kids can have a fun, positive dental experience. By teaching them good oral habits early and helping them enjoy their visits, we’ll set them up to show off a healthy and happy smile for life.

We recommend your child have biannual dental check-ups once their first teeth emerge.


Your Child’s First Appointment

During a 15-30 minute appointment, we’ll conduct a gentle examination of your child’s teeth, counting them and looking at their jaw, gums, bite and entire mouth. They’ll meet our kind staff, and we’ll look over our dental equipment and tools with them so that they feel familiar with our practice.

We emphasise the importance of preventative care, so your child will learn about brushing and flossing regularly, and why they should have check-ups. By seeing them twice a year, we can stop any potential issues before they become costlier and more serious to treat.

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule provides $1013 in benefits for eligible children from ages 2-17. The benefits are available every two consecutive years, and treatment is bulk-billed through Medicare.

Feeling Comfortable

You’ll find that Dr Jessica Filipiak (Dentist) is a caring professional who wants your kids to feel relaxed when they visit us. As a mum of two, she understands how to talk to them on a level that they will appreciate and respond well to.

We even recommend your child accompany you to an appointment before they have a check-up, so that they can get used to our environment.

Frequently Asked Questions

What age should my child start visiting a children’s dentist?

We recommend that children have their first dental visit by the age of one or within six months of the eruption of their first tooth. Early dental visits establish a foundation for good oral health and allow the dentist to monitor tooth development and provide guidance on proper oral care for your child.

Why is it important for my child to visit the dentist twice a year?

Children should visit a children’s dentist every six months for regular check-ups and cleanings. Regular dental visits help prevent dental issues, detect any early signs of decay or abnormalities, and allow the dentist to provide guidance on proper oral hygiene techniques and dietary habits for optimal oral health in children.
