Paediatric Dentistry

Our paediatric dentists are dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through to their teenage years. They help guide children’s dental growth and development by avoiding future dental problems.

If you believe your child’s oral health needs special attention then Lumino The Dentists will be happy to help you find the right treatment.


Why See a Paediatric Specialist?

We strongly believe in preventive care for the children of New Zealand. This is why you should take control of your child’s dental health and take them to visit a paediatric specialist as early as 6 months of age. Early detection is essential to maintain the oral health, modify aberrant habits, and treat as needed and as simple as possible.

A child’s first visit to the dentist should be enjoyable. Our paediatric dentists enjoy working with children, and bring to each patient their expertise in childhood development and behaviour. All paediatric dentists continue their education with an additional 2-3 years or more of training, that includes anaesthesia, pharmacology and child physiology, which allows them to provide the most up-to-date and thorough treatments for a wide variety of children's dental problems.

Reasons to choose to see a Paediatric Specialist:

- If the public dental system is not for your child.
- They have trained to treat children with anxiety, disabilities and other special needs.
- Provide an individualised treatment approach that is tailored just for your child.
- They are trained to use oral and general anaesthesia for children (no big needles).
