“Our team loves kids! We welcome children of all ages into our clinic and believe it's important to visit the dentist early so that your child can get used to all of the sights and smells of the dentist, as well as maintain a healthy smile.”
— Dr Meng Quah-Shepherd
Boutique Dental Care is supporting the Child Dental Benefit Schedule, which entitles children aged from 2-17 to receive a $1000 benefit which lasts over a two year period. This covers general dental needs and some other treatments. Please book an appointment with us to find out more and find out if your child is eligible.
At Boutique Dental Care, we have a team of dentists and therapists who provide comprehensive care for your children. As a parent, it’s important to recognise that dental care for your children starting at a young age can be extremely beneficial to their ongoing health. By bringing your child to visit Boutique Dental Care in Sydney at an early age, we will be able to screen for any developmental problems and also establish good brushing and dietary habits to guarantee better dental health in the long term. It’s also important because this enables Dr Meng Quah-Shepherd and her team to build a lasting relationship with your child, which reduces their risk of dentophobia (dental phobia) later in life.
Early recognition of problems such as snoring, teeth grinding, mouth breathing, narrow jaw structure, dark circles under the eyes and bed wetting is vital so that these issues do not develop into more serious health problems in later years. It’s important to know that when it comes to oral habits, there is barely any habit that does not have an impact on your dental health. If your child has any of the above symptoms, contact us for an assessment.
Snoring and teeth grinding, which are often seen as trivial habits can actually be symptoms of an extremely dangerous condition known as sleep apnoea. Sleep apnoea is a reduction in breathing efficiency when asleep, which can result in compromised oxygen supply and also the quality of sleep your child is receiving. This can affect your child’s ability to pay attention at school which can, in turn, compromise their grades and even affect their general behaviour.
Dr Meng Quah-Shepherd is qualified in the area of sleep apnoea and can provide her expert advice.
