Paediatric Dentistry

Paediatric Dentistry is the specialty that provides comprehensive oral health care for children from birth to adolescence. Paediatric Dentists undergo 3 years post graduate specialty training to equip them with skills and knowledge to manage the dental needs of children in relation to prevention, treatment, behavioural management and development.

We believe in early diagnosis and prevention of dental problems. We believe in teaching our child patients to enjoy dental visits and to develop good dental habits which will see them through life.
