Great oral health starts with achieving and maintaining clean teeth and healthy gums.
Cambridge White Oral Health Therapists and Dental Therapists are highly skilled at relaxing children and taking an appointment at a child's individual pace. Our goal is to develop positive healthy professional relationships for ongoing oral health care.
A fantastic way to experience dentistry is to start with a full mouth clean using the latest in gentle Swiss technology, the EMS Airflow. This is suitable for children and adolescents from about 4 years of age.
We are able to take small very low dose x-rays to reveal and monitor changes inside teeth and under gums. This enables a preventively-focused care plan to be developed with you and your child.
- disclose bacteria and guide your child on best care
- provide an assessment or second opinion, a check of alignment of teeth and referral if needed
- apply fissure sealants
- coat teeth with fluoride varnish to enhance their resistance to decay
- provide dental care to restore teeth or manage conditions
- referral to other services such as specialist care
Your child's very first dental appointment should be between 6 months and 1 year of age and 6-monthly to annually thereafter.
Private fees apply for preventive care for 0-12 year olds, as the Waikato DHB Community Oral Health Service provides routine funded care.
This service is at no charge for 13-17 year olds provided it is part of their annual visit, for which we have a contract with the Waikato DHB.
