Children’s dentistry

At Kalo Dental we believe all children should see a dentist by the time they're 2-3 years of age. Looking for a paediatric dentist in Kogarah?

Dr Peter’s first qualification was as an Oral Health Therapist primarily treating children. He knows the importance of a positive start from a young age which is why he is passionate about working closely with a child’s family to introduce their child positively to the dental setting and making them familiar with what goes on under Dr Peter’s care. Treatment is provided according to the child’s understanding and age.

Why it matters?

An appointment for children’s oral care is one of the most valuable and unique health visits in a child’s early development. Today we can identify very early on in the picture, any hidden whole-body issues/diseases that present in the mouth or via other oral cavity side effects. Potential and obvious dental problems, dentofacial deformities, orthodontic crowding, sinus and ear infections, breathing and airway issues, sleep apnoea, hormone deficiencies, reduced IQ, heart disease and so much more have tale-tell signs that present in the mouth, which is why accustoming your child to a kid-friendly dental check-up at an early age is so crucial.
