    The Importance of Oral Hygiene for Children

    The Importance of Oral Hygiene for Children

    From dinosaur-shaped toothbrushes to strawberry-flavoured toothpaste, parents and dentists go out of their way to encourage our children to adopt a proper oral hygiene routine early on in life. And all for good reason. Studies have shown that inadequate tooth brushing, coupled with poor diet, can lead to major dental decay problems later in life.

    For example, did you know that developing cavities in our primary, or milk teeth, even though we naturally lose those teeth, can lead to developing cavities in permanent teeth? Damage can be done – and bad habits adopted – very early on unless there is intervention.


    At Redbank Dental, we offer children the best available service to help them adopt a good oral hygiene routine, caring for oral health and well-being. Our Child Dental Benefits Schedule plays a key part in this, giving eligible children access to up to $1,000 in benefits per child for dental services over two consecutive calendar years.

    The Schedule covers a wide range of services, including examination, X-rays, cleaning, fillings, extractions and more, so it can make a very big difference to the care of your child’s teeth, at such a crucial time in their lives.


    We are a very family-friendly dental centre, with a relaxed and caring atmosphere that makes children feel comfortable. And our team members are always willing to go that extra mile.
