At DentalPlus dental centre we provide comprehensive oral health care for children from birth through adolescence.

It is recommended that children visit the dentist regularly.

Dedicated facilities for children

We want to make your children’s visit a happy experience. We have a play area in the lobby, cartoons on the ceiling TV when they sit in the dental chair in the treatment room, and a comfortable blanket or stuffed toy to cuddle with. All our care is provided with a gentle touch, and your kids are rewarded with a trip to the goodie area when it is all over!

We make dental visits easy

During each visit, our staff in children’s dentistry spends a great deal of time explaining to your child what can be expected during the treatment. This is done in a very positive way to help the child feel comfortable, and to give him or her some control over what will be happening. You can help us make this next visit a successful and positive experience by working with us to accomplish this goal.

No discomfort during treatment

We believe that all our patients have the right to feel relaxed. We offer sedation dentistry that lets you rest comfortably as we attend to your teeth. We will have completed treatment by the time you are wide awake, letting you use that scented towel to wipe your face and leave the practice feeling happy.

Family Scheduling

Today’s families have more to do than ever. At DentalPlus Clinic, we make it a priority to see our patients on time. That is why we never overbook patients. We suggest you consider family block appointments because everyone can be seen on the same day. Large families have found this type of scheduling very helpful because our family block appointments help relieve the stress they face when trying to plan professional dental care for the entire family. We also provide Children Dental Care. 

Why are children’s dental care important?

Children can start to get cavities as soon as the first teeth emerge. It is very important that the first dental visit is pleasant, not anxiety-producing. Going to see the dentist only when the child has problems does not allow this as the child will then associate the dental clinic with fear and pain. This makes any further dental treatment difficult.

Common dental issues faced by children:

  • Cavities in milk teeth need to be filled to relieve pain and to allow the child to eat, talk and smile confidently.
  • Children can have crooked teeth or a bad bite. The sooner these are discovered, the higher the chances of successful treatment.
  • Parents might not be able to recognise early dental problems.
  • Your dentist can prevent these problems rather than spend time correcting them. Advice on nutrition and home dental care can also be provided.

Why are baby teeth important?

Your child’s baby teeth are more important than you think. Children need strong, healthy teeth to chew their food, speak and have a good-looking smile. Baby teeth also help to keep a space in the jaw for the adult teeth. If a baby tooth is lost too early, the teeth beside it may drift into the empty space. When it’s time for the adult teeth to come in, there may not be enough room, causing the teeth to be crooked or crowded. Severe infection in the baby tooth can also damage the shape and colour of the adult tooth that is forming just below the baby tooth. Therefore children’s dental care is very important.

How to prepare your child for a dental visit in Singapore?

Tooth Extraction
  • Play “dentist”. Count your child’s teeth as you shine a light on them. Then switch roles and let your child play dentist.
  • Read to your child a book about going to the dentist for the first time.
  • Before the appointment, tell the dentist about your child, including any special needs or medical problems like allergies or heart conditions.
  • Make the appointment on a day and time when the child is not tired.
    Be low-key. Treat the visit as routine. Answer questions the child poses honestly but not too specifically.
  • Avoid using bribery and threats in an attempt to encourage good behaviour. Especially refrain from threatening the child with a dental visit when he refuses to brush his teeth or misbehaves.
  • Try not to be anxious about the visit. Don’t communicate your own fears to the child. Avoid saying negative words like pain, jab, pull, or drill.
  • Don’t expect perfect behaviour. Your child may be shy or fearful and misbehave.
  • Don’t make the dentist the villain. Dental care is something you want for your child.

I am very happy with my dental experience at Dental Plus Clinic at Telok Blangah. Dr Therese was very professional and always smiling so gave me confidence as I really am paranoid just listening to the machine. She will ask me how I feel and to show my hand if I am uncomfortable. Dr Therese will also tell me what she is going to do beforehand. I am pleased that I have indeed found a dental clinic to take care of me. I am also please that their front desk representative is very kind and gentle too.

Went to the clinic last week. I was attended by Dr Mabel. Found the whole experience rather pleasant even though i was in pain with a toothache. Dr Mabel was very clear with her explanations and gentle with her procedures. For once, my phobia for dentists diminished . Would definitely be going back to Dentalplus for my regular check ups.
