Did you know Dr Roman loved the dentist as a child?

As a child, the general and child dentist at Chelsea’s Chelsea Dental Group, Dr Roman Pinkus, took inspiration from his own dentist! He was fascinated by the experience and took on board everything his dentist said. And we believe him! Now as a Melbourne dentist himself with a focus on family and kids dental, Dr Roman has brought together a team who loves working with children. Our professional team will guide you and your child through the three main stages of dental development. We’ll also provide advice on teething, oral hygiene, and preventive measures such as diet and fluoride supplements.

Frequently Asked Questions

A baby’s teeth requires the gentlest of care. A small toothbrush designed for babies with soft bristles is ideal. Brushing once or twice a day will help eliminate plaque build-up and bacteria.

Paediatric dentists are equipped to treat the oral health issues of children, from infancy to adolescence. This is due to the additional training they receive after graduating from dental school. Paediatric dentists undergo specialty training that lasts 2-3 years to understand the oral health needs of infants and children.

Dental X-rays cause very minimal radiation exposure owing to safeguards such as high-speed film and lead aprons, making them safe for people of all ages. Additionally, dentists make sure to minimise this exposure in the case of children, reducing the risks further.

You can bring your child in for a dental visit within 6 months after their first tooth has come through or once they turn 12 months of age. During their first dental check-up, the dentist will examine their teeth, gums, bite, oral tissues, and jaw to determine their development and growth.

While a child will eventually lose all baby teeth to be replaced by teeth that are permanent, any decay or oral health issue that they go through while they still have their baby teeth can affect their permanent teeth if left unchecked. Lack of hygiene and care can also result in crowded teeth or affect the development of their jaw.

Further, a good oral hygiene followed early on can help them be diligent about it even later once their permanent teeth erupt.
