Afterschool until 9pm
At Killiney Dental we want your children’s teeth to have the best start in life. Most phobias stem from early childhood traumas and we are acutely aware of our responsibility to nurture your children so they are unafraid of dentists and have the information and tools to take care of their teeth long into their adult lives.
Habits of a life are forged in childhood after all, so to this end we recommend bringing your children with you to the dentists from birth. They do not have to sit in the chair until they are good and ready. But by allowing them the opportunity to observe their trusted parents in a safe environment undergoing routine examinations, it will give them the confidence to attend themselves when the time is right. We have appointments available from 8:30am until 9:00pm at night in order to facilitate working moms and dads.
We normally recommend that all children should ideally begin to attend for examinations from the age of three onwards.
Our child examinations are normally a gentle affair. We focus on reassuring the child, advising parents on diet and any prospective orthodontic issues, and by showing them how to care for their teeth through the use of dental models and child-friendly pictures. Older children may be suitable for fissure sealants to prevent decay in the permanent back teeth or may need a direct referral to our in-house orthodontist. Any of your kids who play contact sports can have their very own personalised sports guard made in any colour combination imaginable.
Every child who attends will, of course, leave with the traditional sticker. As parents of three kids under six, we know how varied children’s tastes can be. They even chose the characters for us, so the sticker options cover everything from spiderman to princesses and the dark knight himself..
Dentistry does not have to be boring, especially for your kids!
