At Hopkins Dental we provide a comprehensive dental care plan for you and your family. We work together with you to plan your oral health maintenance program, which includes assessment of your teeth, periodontal and gum health, teeth cleaning and evaluation of x-rays.
Routine dental check-ups are recommended every 6 months with your healthcare provider.
Children are recommended to see a health care provider from 2 years old. Deciduous teeth (baby teeth) may seem like an unnecessary complication in early childhood as they are replaced eventually by adult teeth.
At Hopkins Dental we see them differently; the mouth is an essential part of growth and development, it shapes your child’s face and allows them to thrive and grow, it plays an important part in speech development and can be an early indicator of medical conditions and growth issues.
Let us help establish healthy dental patterns and manage the care for your child and provide you with the information to assist at home. We are happy to see your child at any age just for a walk around and visit – it’s all about familiarity and consistency.
We are lucky to have the Child Dental Benefits Scheme to help us help you. This is a scheme developed to work with Medicare and helps us provide services to children aged between 2 and 18 years of age. It does have eligibility requirements, but it can help take the pressure off ensuring your child gets the best possible start in life.
Routine check-ups are recommended for Children every 6-12 months depending on the child and their dental needs.
