Kid’s Dental Services

Kids Dental Services in Bentleigh East


Are you looking for a new dental clinic to care for your child’s oral health?

Here at Chesterville Dental, we want to make sure that all children have a great experience from their first dental check-up. When it comes to kids dental care, it’s important to make sure that your child feels safe and comfortable from the get-go.

Dr. Jasmine has a special interest in kids dental care. She has received extensive training in the management of children in a dental setting, as well as common procedures and issues that fall under the umbrella of kids dental care, including orthodontics and teeth straightening.

Dr Jasmine also has extensive experience with diagnosing and treating common issues surrounding dental hygiene and oral health.

Recent research shows a correlation between children snoring as well as teeth grinding and airway issues (insufficient oxygen), all of which are best diagnosed early to prevent lasting damage and to ensure that your kids’ dental care maintains a strong foundation.

FAQ About Kids Dental Services


When should my child see a dentist?

We recommend that a child has their first trip to the dentist by age 1 or within six months after their first tooth emerges.

How can I prepare my child for his or her first dental appointment?

The best way to prepare your child for their first dental appointment is to have a positive attitude about it around them.

Showing the images of the dental clinic on our website will also help your son or daughter to be more familiar with the features of the clinic, rather than letting his/her imagination run wild. Also, explain that the dentist is here to make sure teeth are healthy and strong.

What happens during the first visit to the dentist?

The first few appointments are really to introduce and familiarise your child with your dental clinic as well as with your kid’s dentist, which may include sitting on the dental chair and an introduction to dental instruments. This early building of trust will go a long way when it is actually time for any pressing dental work to take place.

How can I help my child through teething?

Sore gums from teeth erupting in infants is perfectly normal. Your child’s discomfort may be eased by giving them something safe to chew and bite on, such as a cold teething ring.

Pain medication that is suitable for infants can also be found at your local pharmacy.

How much does Kid's Dental cost?

With the Medicare-run Child Dental Benefits Schedule, families can now access up to $1000 worth of cover for kids dental care over a two year period. At Chesterville Dental, we have made a commitment to completely bulk bill all eligible services up to $1000, so that there are little to no out of pocket costs for families with young kids who may require dental work.

We strive to provide the highest standards of kids dental care without premium costs.

Services that are covered include kids dental check-ups and teeth cleaning, fillings, x-rays, fissure sealing, extractions, and root canal procedures. Cosmetic dentistry procedures are not covered by the Schedule.
