Calvary Wakefield Surgicentre provides specialised dental care for children ranging from 12 months old to young people aged up to 18 years including:

  • Extraction (removal of teeth)
  • Fillings
  • Restoration (e.g. repair of teeth that have a reduced amount of enamel or have been damaged in an accident)
  • X-rays

Our nurses work closely with parents to make sure that each child feels safe and comfortable before and after their dental procedure. We encourage one parent to stay with their child when we give the anaesthetic and that they are again present when their child wakes in recovery. The focus is on making sure that your child is clinically safe and feels secure at all times during their treatment.

We provide surgery for children requiring extensive or complex dental procedures and those who are anxious or have complex special needs, requiring a general anaesthetic.

We are especially skilled in caring for children with special needs. Examples include patients with autism spectrum disorders, Down syndrome, severe development delay or a physical disability that can make dental care difficult or traumatic.

Paediatric dentists are specialists who have practiced as general dentists for at least two years before completing a further three-year specialist-training program at an accredited children’s hospital or clinic.
