Our Paediatric Dentistry department provides comprehensive dental health care for children from birth to adolescence. Children need dental care right from the time the teeth starts erupting, similar to well-baby clinics that ensure normal growth and development throughout growing period. It is a myth that temporary teeth do not require care as they are any way going to fall down and will be replaced by permanent teeth after the age of 6-7 years. In fact good care of temporary teeth ensures healthy permanent teeth.

Children are not always able to be patient and cooperative during a dental exam. Our experts know how to examine and treat children in ways that make them comfortable. In addition, they use specially designed equipment in clinics that are arranged and decorated with children in mind.

Our experts are specially trained to manage basic to complex treatments for children, with a focus on pain management and anxiety control.
