Teaching Good HabitsStarts Early

Tandara Dental Centre invites local early childhood centres and schools to get in touch to book a free, oral health presentation.

During the visits, staff teach children the importance of oral health and create awareness about the importance of oral hygiene while introducing kids and their families to the dentist. The presentations are fun and interactive and deliver a positive message so children’s fears and anxieties are addressed before they have to visit the dentist! Call us today to discuss booking a presentation today or read more on Children’s Dentistry.
