The First Smiles difference

A smile is a powerful thing. It can instantly spread joy and laughter, or convey kindness and compassion. It influences how people see us, and how we see ourselves.

Dr Siva Vasudavan and Dr Vaish Gopalakrishnan know the importance of a beautiful smile goes beyond appearance; it can affect our health, our speech and our self-esteem.

They’ve come together to create Perth’s first fully integrated centre for Paediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics as there are so many benefits from both a patient and treatment perspective.

Integrated Specialist Care

  • Paediatric Dentistry

    No child is too young to visit the dentist, and your child should have their first dental visit at around 12 months of age. Baby teeth provide the framework for the development of adult teeth, and looking after them is an investment in your child’s smile for life. While there are many dentists who provide treatment to children, a Specialist Paediatric Dentist has completed additional training in this specialised field to ensure your No.1 receives the best possible care.

  • Orthodontics

    Every child should visit a Specialist Orthodontist by 7 years of age. Whilst some children won’t be ready for orthodontics at this age, a timely consultation allows us to provide early intervention to guide growth (if required) or continue to monitor your child’s dental development until the perfect time for treatment. And if you’ve arrived a bit late, there’s no need for despair – there are always options for delivering a beautiful smile at any age.

We make little and big smiles healthy smiles.
