Dr Linda recommends bringing your child for their first dental visit by 12 months of age or when their first baby tooth comes out. At this appointment, she can assess your child and give you very important information about your child's tooth development, dietary needs for healthy tooth development and answer any questions you may have about your child's oral health
As a paediatric specialist, Dr Linda has undertaken three years of post graduate, full time extensive study, specialising in comprehensively managing children's dental needs, including admission privileges and endorsements at major hospitals for treatment under General Anaesthetic. This means that Dr Linda undertakes the most challenging cases as well as everyday general treatment, and is routinely referred patients from other General Dentists when specialist level treatment is required.
Yes, we do use 'happy gas' otherwise known as Nitrous Oxide. While we have extensive experience dealing with children with different needs and many strategies to help relieve anxiety during your child's dental visit, there are cases where, together with you, our team will decide to use 'happy gas'.
No, you will not need a referral to see Dr Linda. One of our friendly team will be more than happy to help you book an appointment over the phone 9571 6667. Otherwise you can conveniently book online through our 'book an appointment page' on our website.
The answer to this depends on many factors including the age of your child, the treatment needed, the length of the treatment, the anxiety or anticipation levels of your child. We will be able to guide you through these options at your consultation in the clinic.
The main focus for us is that your child feels as stress-free and as calm as possible during his/ her treatment.
We have many strategies to manage the expectations and requirements your children and you as parents/caregivers have and in most cases, can perform the treatment in the clinic.
There are instances where we will recommend your child have their treatment done under General Anaesthetic in the hospital. Dr Linda has operating rights at Chesterville Day Hospital, Bellbird Private Hospital and Wyndham Clinic Private Hospital and works closely with an amazing team of anaesthetists and hospital staff to make your child's experience as positive as possible.
No, you should not be worried! Our recommendation is to book in a consultation with Dr Linda who will be able to review your child and give you the most up to date, safest advice for your child.
