Children's & Family Dentist in Geelong
Having a family dentist is a vital part of your family’s overall health and well-being. Over a period of time and with regular visits, your local dentist will get to know you and your dental health.
Our experienced and friendly team located in Belmont Geelong will help you maintain a healthy mouth, teeth and gums. We can work to prevent dental problems by performing regular examinations and scaling and cleaning to remove unwanted bacteria from in and around your teeth.
It is good to carry out regular x-rays too, as they can provide our dentists with a more complete picture of what is happening in your mouth, from your gums, bone structure and inside your teeth. We will be able to uncover problems that can’t be seen with a regular examination and will suggest a treatment plan.
Children’s dental services
Dentistry of Excellence also has extensive experience and training in children’s dental treatment at our family dental clinic in Geelong, so it is vital to make sure good dental health and habits are taught and practised from a young age. We will help both the parents and their children to understand this and make the most out of each daily tooth cleaning session!
Fissure sealing is of enormous value for children in the prevention of tooth decay. As experienced Geelong children’s dentists, we regularly advise parents to consider this type of sealing to fill in the natural grooves and “fissures” of young teeth that cannot be reached by the bristles of a toothbrush.
In children, regular checks and x-rays help us to track how their teeth and jawbones are developing and flag potential issues that may arise as your child grows. It may be that x-rays will reveal an obvious need for orthodontics in the future or other dental treatments such as wisdom teeth removal.
As a part of our commitment to pediatric dentistry, our family dental clinic provides basic dental services under the Child Dental Benefit Scheme up to the value of $1000. If you are eligible for a Medicare card and Family Tax Benefit A, and your child is aged between two and 17 years, you are eligible to claim benefits under the Child Dental Benefit Scheme, giving you much greater access to children’s dental services.
The services that attract payments under the Child Dental Benefit Scheme include tooth extractions, teeth scaling and cleaning, fillings, general dental examinations, root canal therapy, fissure sealants and more. We are more than happy to discuss with you the services we have available to you at Dentistry of Excellence in Geelong.
Dentistry of Excellence is not just about dental procedures. We strive to educate all of our patients about the best oral hygiene techniques to practice at home.
Dentistry of Excellence is the best dentist Geelong has to offer and your Geelong family dentist and paediatric dentist, providing you with friendly and professional dental care and advice.
