Your child’s first smile is a magical moment and their first tooth is a milestone in their life. At DENTAL ART we want to help you and your child look after those precious teeth right through to adulthood.

Good oral hygiene is determined in childhood so it’s vital that children’s dental experiences are positive. Of course many of our patients are too young to fully appreciate the importance of good oral hygiene and that’s why we work closely with parents so they can make informed and responsible choices on behalf of their children.

We are committed to making your child feel comfortable about a visit to the dentist. We offer a child-friendly environment and compassionate staff members to make your child feel at home. However, if your child is particularly anxious about visiting the dentist, we offer a paediatric inhalation sedation service to help them through any necessary dental treatment.

Hey kids this is for you!!
