Children are not just tiny adults, and at Live Life Smiling we recognise and understand what it takes to ensure that your child has a great experience at the dentist. The first few exposures that a child has to a dentist can shape a lifetime of dental experiences and attitudes, and we want to make sure that your child grows up happy and healthy.

Our Newcastle Dentists are not specialist paedodontists, but they are all parents with decades of experience in treating children who they see grow up and become teenagers, young adults, and eventually parents themselves who bring their own children in. We don’t like to routinely treat children with general anaesthetic, instead preferring to build sustainable relationships and developing healthy attitudes to dental care.

We understand that your child’s first dental visit can be a daunting experience, so we try and provide parents and children with as much information as possible before you come in, so nothing surprises you or them on the day. Just like adults, regular dental visits are a must if disease is to be prevented!

Our Newcastle dentists bulk-bill all eligible children under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS), which means parents often end up not paying anything out of pocket for their childrens treatment. You can find out more information about the CDBS here, or find out if your child is eligible by making a request here.

If your child has severe dental disease, or a unique medical condition, we work closely with several specialist paedodontists to ensure that they are cared for in an environment which is suitable for their needs.

Please call us on (02) 4950 9221 to book an appointment for your child today.
