Creating positive experiences with dental visits is an important part of early childhood, as this will go a long way in ensuring a lifetime of healthy, happy smiles. It is not uncommon for children to experience hesitation and anxiety when visiting the dentist, and the friendly and experienced team at DentArana do everything possible to make your child’s visit a positive one.
Adopting a warm and empathetic approach when treating childrens dental issues helps to instil the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene and visiting the dentist regularly for check-ups. We take the time to listen to children’s concerns, and explain the procedure in simple terms so that they have complete confidence whilst in the chair. Our modern and welcoming dental clinic is equipped with modern dental technologies, and we aim to create a soothing ambience for all our patients.
The team at DentArana take children’s dental health seriously, and we welcome children of all ages – from infants through to adolescents and teenagers. With a comprehensive range of dental services on offer, we make it straightforward and cost effective to look after your children’s dental health.

When Should Children Start Visiting the Dentist?
Upon reaching the age of two, an appointment should be made for your child’s first oral health assessment. The first appointment will involve a visual inspection of your child’s teeth, mouth and gums to make sure there are no signs of decay and nothing unusual to be seen. During their initial visit, your child may experience some anxiety. However, our experienced team will do everything possible to make the experience comfortable, gentle and enjoyable. This is also a great opportunity for your child to become accustomed to sitting in the dental chair for routine check-ups.
X-rays are typically taken between the age of 4-6. This helps in gaining a better understanding of your child’s teeth and gum development, in addition to highlighting any cavities which may be present. Any potential crowding issues will also be evident, in which case future orthodontic treatment can be discussed.
DentArana recommend booking children’s dental appointments in the morning, as children can often feel tired after a busy day at pre-school or school.
