    Talking Paediatric dentist in Brisbane

    Can anyone recommend a paediatric dentist in Brisbane? We are northside but would travel for someone good.

    How did you find:
    (a) How they were with kids
    (b) The rooms
    (c) The hip pocket post consultation?

    TIA

    To get what done? We find any regular dentist great but that is just for general check/clean. Thee is a dentist fairy, I think she is on southside though

    I have not had any experience but I think there is a kids dentist at Chermside, on Gympie Road.

    Hi ,

    We haven't used a Brisbane based one but our usual dentist referred us to one through the 'Pediatric Dental Group' to a closer one. Our eldest had to have a 'dead' tooth that she'd bumped when younger removed as an absess had formed. As well as seals on her back teeth to protect from further reflux damage, AND four top front teeth removed and measured for a spreader device. This was fitted later and widened her top jaw for her large adult teeth to fit and hopefully not need braces.

    The dentist we saw and had the surgery with was wonderful. The appointments were easily booked and organised from a central booking type place. I can't quite remember the exact appointment fees but from memory they were between $100 to $140 each visit (but the check up post surgery was free).

    I can't speak highly enough of them and our daughter was actually disappointed that she didn't have to go back after her last check. She brought it up a week or so ago when we were talking dentists .

    Best of luck finding one that suits you.

    Sam

    Thanks everyone. Don't need anything major done but I like the idea of a practice catering to children - setting up for a lifetime of good preventive care IYKWIM. Plus DD1 is pushing her teeth forward due to thumb sucking, she doesn't have her bottom lateral incisors yet (and I want to know if they are there!) and there is a family history of enamel hypoplasia. So I have specific questions that a paed practice will be best placed to answer.

    Default Paediatric dentist in Brisbane

    Update. They were fantastic at PDG. Don't need to see the dentist next time as all good but have made an appointment with the therapist.
