Children’s Dentistry in Torquay

Dr Mohammed works in a specialist orthodontist practice, treating referred children with special needs, ADHD, autism, and similar conditions, for early orthodontic interventions.

The First Dental Experience

For parents bringing in young children for their first dental visit, we have special elements in place to make the experience more relaxing and fun. Our team is skilled at working with children and assessing their individual needs to help them feel comfortable during their visit. We offer access to distractions, such as cartoons, if needed, and we work to make each child’s visit as positive as possible.

Early Intervention

At Torquay Smiles, we do not only assess the child’s teeth, but we also assess the jaws growth, breathing issues, and other oral habits which may result in abnormal dentofacial developments.

Child Dental Benefits Schedule

Parents can also rest assured that we accept the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS), which provides financial assistance for basic dental services to eligible children aged between 2-17 years old. With CDBS, children can receive up to $1000 in dental services over two consecutive calendar years.

Braces for Older Children

For older kids who may need braces, our process makes the transition as smooth and stress-free as possible. Our team will assess your child’s orthodontic needs and provide a personalised plan of care that fits their unique needs and your budget.

Once the plan is approved, we work with you to schedule appointments and discuss options for braces, which may include Damon metal braces, or newer alternatives like clear aligners. Our goal is to provide your child with the best possible outcome, while making the process as comfortable and convenient as possible.
