Dr Maharaj and her assistant understand that every child is different (every adult too!) and so time is taken to introduce the child to the concept and to get to know each other a little better. Dr Maharaj has a great deal of experience in handling the emotional aspect of a child’s visit to the dentist. If your child is nervous, it is ill-advised to put off dental visits. At The Kloof Tooth Fairy the utmost care is taken to ease nervous / wary children into the process and to build a trusting relationship with them.
A child’s first dental visit should be around the age of 5 years unless an emergency arises. At this age children typically have a better emotional understanding of dental visits and the process can be taught and explained with greater ease. Dr Maharaj can take care of your child’s oral health from this moment, through adulthood. In the event that your child cannot have treatment on the dental chair arrangements to treat the child under General Anaesthetic in Theatre is made and co-ordinated by Dr Maharaj’s practice.
