Anxious Kids

Anxious Kids

It is understandable that many children are wary of new places and experiences. We understand that something that we as adults may see as non-eventful, like a visit to the dentist, may be unusual or scary to a child, particularly for the first appointment.

To ensure your child has a fun and engaging visit, we take time to get to know the child and develop a rapport with them. We have stickers and prizes on hand as rewards and our staff are frequently seen giving hi-fives to the younger patients as they leave.

Anxious Kids

For those children who require a little extra help to relax and have a pleasant experience, we offer ‘Happy Gas’ (nitrous oxide) sedation. Your child’s dentist will discuss this option with you if they think that it will help your child to be more comfortable during a procedure. It is considered a relatively low-risk option and can often make the difference between children wanting to return for future appointments, instead of developing an avoidable fear of dentists.
In more extreme circumstances, we can offer treatment under General Anaesthesia for children where conventional treatment and sedation options are not appropriate.
