The team at Paediatric Dental Home are children’s dentists providing specialist paediatric dental care for children from birth to 18 years of age-or until they outgrow our dental chair!

The practice has two clinics, Hoppers Crossing and Geelong. The team is led by Dr Anuj Batra who has worked in the local area for over 12 years. Dr. Batra is joined by Dr Alyssa Brooks a paediatric dental specialist.

“As a long-term commitment to the fast-growing Wyndham and surrounding areas we have recently opened a modern, new child-friendly practice in Hoppers Crossing where we look forward to welcoming you soon,” said Dr Batra.

“Our practice is conveniently located at 92 Derrimut Road, Hoppers Crossing, within walking distance to the Werribee Plaza.”

What is a paediatric dentist (specialist in children’s dentistry)?

A paediatric dentist is qualified in the branch of dentistry that is concerned with preventive and therapeutic oral health care for children from birth through to adolescence, and especially for those with special needs. Paediatric dentistry includes the management of orofacial problems related to medical, behavioural, physical and developmental disabilities.

How can my child benefit from seeing a paediatric dentist?

Paediatric dentists undergo extensive training and have expertise in:

• carrying out a comprehensive dental examination and identifying any problems or concerns

• children with extensive dental decay

• helping children with anxiety or behavioural issues, including Anxiety, Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD and more

• very young children, from birth, for oral conditions, oro-facial growth and development and nutritional advice

• children with various medical and/or genetic conditions

• a variety of dental injuries to primary and permanent teeth

• dental conditions like hypomineralised or ’chalky’ teeth, missing teeth, extra teeth, tooth eruption problems, abnormal formation of teeth

• treatment using specialised techniques like sedation in addition to providing treatment in a hospital setting under general anaesthesia.

Do I need a referral to see a paediatric dentist?

A lot of children we see are referred by their general dentist/doctor but you do not require a referral to come and see us.
