At Eaglehawk Dental, we love children and have a special way to put them at ease. We make very effort to make them feel comfortable, and to make their experience a pleasant one.
Dental problems can begin very early in life, including early childhood tooth decay, gum disease, and poor oral hygiene habits. The earlier the dental visit, the better the chances of preventing such problems. Strong, healthy teeth help your child chew food easily, speak clearly, and feel good about his or her appearance.
Healthy baby teeth allow normal development of the jawbones and muscles, save space for adult teeth, and guide them into place. If a baby tooth is lost too soon, permanent teeth may come in crooked.

Why Choose Eaglehawk Dental For Your Child
While preparing your child for their first dental visit we suggest you prepare them the same way as you would before their first haircut. Its important you are not nervous about the trip as children have a kind of anxiety-sensing radar.
We will work together to motivate your child toward a healthy diet and hygiene to get them off to a great start and set the foundation for your child’s lifetime of good oral health.
Our Oral Health Therapist Alison Thomas is a mother of three beautiful children. Hence love and concern comes naturally to her. The fact that she has considerable patience goes without saying. She is thoughtful but strong, enabling her to give instructions that children follow.
Her softness and gentle nature is exhibited in her ability to treat children compassionately. Her friendly face and kindness is often welcomed with excitement by our child patients. She has the gift to be able to capture the attention of children and get them to listen. She takes pride in educating children on the importance of diet, drinks, and proper care for teeth.
Alison loves working with children and this is evident in the joy she spreads to them. Being born, brought up, and settled in Bendigo ensures continuity of care through to adulthood.
