9 Of the best child-friendly dentists in Adelaide. Recommended by Adelaide Mums Group members.

Visiting the dentist will probably never be listed as someones favourite past time. Most adults find it a chore to visit their dentist, some adults even refuse to go due to fear.

Imagine how a child would feel. Going to the dentist would not be a common occurrence for them, and some are yet to visit the dentist. The feeling of a stranger's rubber gloved hands, and foreign instruments in their mouth can be very daunting and leave a child feeling anxious.

That is why it's so important to find a dentist who is excellent with children, whether it be kind, gentle, and reassuring, or perhaps has a colourful, child-like atmosphere, or a mixture of both. Adelaide Mums Group has compiled a list of child-friendly dentists in Adelaide, from your recommendations.
