Early childhood dental care is essential to help your child maintain good oral hygiene throughout the entire life. At Asia Pacific Dental Centre, we give equal importance to children’s dentistry as well and provide a friendly and stress free dental experience.
It is best to take your child to the dentist when he or she is 1 year old. A young child needs to be slowly introduced to the clinic environment to lower the level of fear and anxiety associated with the dental treatment.
As the saying goes, “Prevention is better than cure”. Early dental intervention and prevention is our primary vision for children from birth to adolescence. We offer a full range of preventive and restorative dental treatment for children and encourage parents to schedule a preventive visit for their children early, and not to wait to act until a toothache occurs, as it may lead to a traumatic and unpleasant first experience for the young one.
Apart from rendering dental services, parents will also need to be actively engaged and involved in maintaining their children’s oral health. Here in Asia Pacific Dental Centre, we have a team of Dentists and Oral Health Therapists who can share valuable knowledge on oral hygiene and oral health practices.
Fret not! Our Dentists and Oral Health Therapists are warm, friendly, and trained in child behavioural management. On top of that, our dental professionals would often adopt the “Tell-Show-Do” technique or positive reinforcement to acclimatise your child before starting on any dental procedure. We will explain using child friendly terms and ensure that your child is aware of the purpose for every step of the treatment.
