Smile Solutions helps Victorian children make healthier decisions

The last National Child Oral Health Study (2012–14) found that approximately 1 in 20 children aged five to ten years have lost at least one deciduous tooth due to dental decay, with two-thirds of children in this age group claiming to brush their teeth with toothpaste at least twice a day.

At Smile Solutions we believe that good oral health is about more than just brushing and flossing regularly. Our diet and general lifestyle choices affect all aspects of our health and well-being, which is why we are proud to partner with Life Education to provide young Australians with the best preventative health education.

The less sugar your child eats, the better. Sugars weaken the enamel on teeth, making the teeth vulnerable to decay. You can encourage your child to eat whole grains, fibres, fruits, and foods high in calcium, by cutting these foods into fun shapes.

Managing Director at Smile Solutions, Dr Kia Pajouhesh

Established in 1993, Smile Solutions has grown to become the largest dental practice in Australia and is often referred to as Melbourne’s home of dentistry.

We understand that a child's approach to dental health is often shaped by their first visit to the dentist, which is why we have a specialist department that focuses on ensuring children enjoy a positive experience with every visit, tailoring our services and treatments to facilitate this. At Smile Solutions we have dental therapists, hygienists, and registered specialists all practicing in the same location, so you are assured that all your child's dental health requirements are completely taken care of.
