PAEDIATRIC DENTIST, BONDI JUNCTION

WE MAKE A TRIP TO THE DENTIST SOMETHING TO SMILE ABOUT

At Dental Paediatrix we know that kids – and often their parents – don’t get too excited at the prospect of getting their teeth looked at by the dentist. We also know that in the right environment, and with the right care, this needn’t be the case.

With a wealth of experience treating children, our friendly team makes your child’s comfort a priority. From the brightly painted murals on our walls to the smiles greeting you as you walk through our doors, we’re a far cry from your typical dental practice!

By putting your child at ease, we can better assess and treat them, making every visit to our Bondi practice as enjoyable as possible.

In addition to checkups and treatment, we’ll also help your child learn about caring for their teeth in a fun and judgement-free way.

We can care for your child’s teeth from the day of their first visit until the day they turn 18, at which point we hope to have established in them an appreciation of the importance of good oral health throughout their life.

Dental Paediatrix was established by Professor Richard Widmer and business partner Dr Anna Sanares-Brissett in 2010. Over the next decade, they grew it into one of the most respected paediatric dental practices not just in Sydney’s East, but statewide. Upon his retirement from private practice in 2018, Richard handed over his reins to longtime team member Dr Jad Clarke. Today, Jad and Anna strive to lead their team at Dental Paediatrix according to the highest principles entrenched by Richard. 

We look forward to welcoming you and your child to a happier trip to the dentists, as we have done countless other families from the Eastern Suburbs and beyond.
