We at Boroondara Dental Clinic believe that good dental health is important for overall well-being and oral health. We know that visiting the dental office can be stressful, and we want to help you feel as relaxed and comfortable as we can.

We also recognise the link between oral and overall health. Researchers have found that gum disease, for example, can increase your risk of heart disease and diabetes. Regular dental visits can help you maintain good oral health and reduce your risk for these health issues. By making regular dental visits your priority, we encourage you to be proactive in maintaining good oral health. Our team of experienced and caring dentists is committed to providing personalised care that meets your goals and needs.

Children’s Dentistry Templestowe Lower

Children's dentist Templestowe Lower

We are committed to delivering gentle and respectful dental care for children of all ages at Boroondara Family Dentist in Templestowe Lower and the neighboring suburbs.

We aim to educate children about good oral habits to ensure they have a healthy mouth throughout their lives. Eligible children can receive $1000 of dental care over a 2-year period through the Child Dental Benefits Scheme provided by Medicare.

Dental care plays a vital role in children’s overall health. The prevalence of tooth decay in children is growing in Australia. In 2010, decay was found in the baby teeth of 55% of 6-year-olds and in the permanent teeth of 48% of 12-year-olds.

It’s recommended for children to start seeing a dentist at the age of three or four. Regular dental visits help maintain good oral health. Delaying a visit until a child experiences pain can create a distressing first encounter and potentially cause lasting fear issues.
