Children’s Dentistry

A Childs visit should be happy and stress free.

Children should have their first visit as soon as they get a few teeth to help them become comfortable with at the dentist and to help them prepare for a lifetime of good oral hygiene.

Our Oral Health Therapist Mandy helps educate the prevention of decay and how important this is from an early age, which is why we try to educate on diet and tooth brushing.

At Mermaid Dental we aim to provide the education of the importance of preventive maintenance for the entire family.
