Children's dentist Port Macquarie
At TL Dental Port Macquarie we love keeping tiny teeth healthy.
Our team together with our visiting children's dentist can accommodate a variety of treatments from general check-ups to more complex work. For nervous young children needing surgery, our children's dentist provides mild sedation or general anaesthetic. We offer gap-free check-ups (including clean & x-rays) for all health funds for children under 12 and bulk bill under the Medicare Child Dental Benefits Scheme (eligible children).

Your child's first dental visit
At TL Dental, we ease your child into visiting the dentist by building trust and making them feel safe and comfortable. At first, your child may be reluctant to let the dentist look at their teeth, but the key is for your child to slowly get used to visiting and view dental appointments as ordinary events.
Your child's first visit should occur at around their first birthday
The first check-up visit is a "ride" in the chair and a few intraoral photos taken with your child sitting on your lap
Over time we ease your child into other treatments such as scale and cleans
