The initial appointment for children differs slightly depending on age. Generally, your child meets the dentist and has an opportunity to get used to the dentist’s high-tech chair. This consultation mainly involves a visual inspection. X-rays may be taken at this visit if necessary, making sure there’s nothing unusual with the child’s teeth and gums. The dentist will also assess your child’s growth and development and identify any risk of dental decay.
Your child’s visit is often an interactive one. We will assess areas where your child misses brushing, highlight it to them and teach your child how to brush properly. Flossing techniques are often discussed and we educate your child on the importance of a healthy diet on teeth. We will also be using our own special electric toothbrush with bubble-gum flavour toothpaste that kids love.
When should you bring your child for their first dental visit?
It is best if you refrain from using words around your child that might cause unnecessary fear, such as needle, pull, drill, or hurt. We will explain all procedures to children in terms they can understand by using pleasant and non-frightening words and demonstrate the equipment in a fun and imaginative way. Every possible effort will be made to make the visit psychologically pleasant. Please do not be upset if your child cries! Crying is a normal reaction to fear. Children may be afraid of anything new and strange to them. Kindness is the greatest contribution for overcoming fear and it must be our united objective to eliminate dental fears. Each child is different and we will treat your child according to their individual needs and with input from their parents.
Can I take advantage of the Child Dental Benefits schedule?
Benefits for basic dental services, including examinations, X-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extractions are capped at $1000 per child over two consecutive calendar years. There is no waiting list for these sessions, the young patient will be given the next available appointment or can be scheduled at a time suitable for you.

Lovely friendly practise and amazingly professional service. I’m lucky to live close by but would travel the distance to get the quality service Dr. Linda and the team provides. I honestly feel like I’m treating myself when I go for my appointments :) Thank you Lumina Dental for my beautiful healthy smile!
Best dental team! Great with kids and outstanding service with top quality surgery!
Strongly recommend Dr Linda Yoon. Very detailed and excellent treatment that's actually pain free! So happy! Visited with my 3 kids and they all loved her! So gentle and knows how to deal with kids so well too~
Doctor Ishita Mam is a Rockstar.
When I went to her I was nervous regarding the process .She gently understands and then caringly and encouragingly does the treatment.I went with pain and came back with smile:) Thanks the entire team of Lumina dental and best wishes!
I was wondering how it is possible of a dentist to have straight 5 star ratings, until I was experiencing myself how dr. Linda dealt with patients. She even asked sorry for my own tooth pain that I felt that's not her mistake at all. I think about doctors that work to respect and treat patient with dignity, dr. Linda is one of them. Definitely very happy and will recommend to my friends who need dentist!
