Why Are Two Dental Visits Necessary Each Year?

Why Are Two Dental Visits Necessary Each Year?

Importance of 2 visits to your Cairns Dentist each year

You’ve heard it said time and again, “visit your dentist twice a year for a check-up and a cleaning,” but how important is it for your child to come and visit us at least twice every year? Very, and here’s why! 

Learn Better Oral Health Habits 

Regular visits to their dentist get kids in the habit of taking care of their teeth. At Cairns Dental Boutique, we are dedicated to teaching every child that comes through our doors how to best care for their teeth. 

Not only do we teach our young patients how to properly brush and floss their teeth, but we also make sure to inform parents of the best ways they can help in securing a bright, happy smile for their children throughout their childhood! We also assist parents in making informed decisions about their child’s oral health, from getting dental sealants to buying the right kind of fluoridated toothpaste! 

We are passionate about creating a fun, comfortable environment in which we can build strong relationships with our patients, teach them how to care for their teeth, and help parents become partners in their child’s dental health! 

Maintain Good Oral Health Habits into Adulthood 

Studies show that kids who visit their dentist twice per year continue seeing a dentist in adulthood. Teaching your child that it is normal to visit the dentist twice a year for a check-up and cleaning sets the stage for better oral health habits when they are adults! 

Children – and adults – who visit the dentist regularly and follow good oral health habits are less likely to develop cavities, gum disease, or other preventable dental issues. 

Take Advantage of Your Dental Care Coverage 

Like they do for adults, most insurance plans will cover two annual visits for free for your children, so there is no reason not to take advantage of this benefit! If you have questions about your dental insurance coverage, we can help! We’re happy to help you better understand your plan and the benefits you get from it.

I, Dr. Trinidad Jacial preferably Trini, was born and raised in Santiago, Chile and completed my Bachelor of Dental Surgery with Honours & as dux of my class at Universidad Mayor in 2011.

Following my Bachelor degree, I completed my Postgraduate studies in Doctor of Clinical Dentistry (Prosthodontics) and a Postgraduate Diploma in Cariology and Aesthetic Restorations from Universidad De Los Andes.

Thereafter, I have gained extensive experience in different aspects of dentistry, working in the private and public sectors.

In 2016, I decided to take an extended holiday to Australia and which was once supposed to be a limited-time adventure turned into a permanent move when I fell in love with the people and beauty of Cairns. 

Since then, I have worked hard in transferring my studies and to be able to practice as a registered dentist in Australia, while still working and being active in the dental industry. 

With a wealth of knowledge and passion for what I do, I am commitment to providing exceptional dental care which is matched by my dedication to create a warm and welcoming environment for my patients. I believe listening to and understanding my patients is fundamental, and that education is the key to maintaining good oral health.

Restoring patient’s confidence, with a healthy smile with perfect aesthetics and functionality is one of the most rewarding things for me.

In addition to being a successful dentist, I primarily am a devoted wife and mother of two beautiful girls and a large fur baby. I enjoy dancing to Latin-American music every time I get a chance

When you come to see me, you can expect compassionate treatment with a personalised approach. I very much look forward to meeting you and building a great rapport with my patients.

I grew up in a small town in the middle of Sweden. My parents loved travelling and were always encouraging me to explore the world, which led me to migrate to Australia in 2010.

I am a calm, caring individual, and I have always known that I wanted to work within the healthcare industry. I have a strong passion to help people in overcoming their dental anxieties, whilst providing gentle treatment and working with them towards achieving their goals. One of the best aspects of my job is to see my patients’ happy faces when they realise that they can smile confidently again, giving them improved overall health and wellbeing. I enjoy building trust and a positive rapport with my patients and always look forward to meeting new people.

In 2020, I completed a Bachelor of Dental Surgery at James Cook University, gaining a wide variety of knowledge and experience. I particularly love treating children as well as providing aesthetic treatments that restore your perfect smile, although I do enjoy all aspects of dentistry.

As the newest member of the team at Cairns Dental Boutique I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into my chair to see how I can assist you with your dental needs.

Hi, I am Dr Puneet Roy Jindal, but please feel free to call me Dr Roy, Dr Jindal or just Roy. Thank you so much for visiting our website and please allow me this opportunity to introduce myself.

I grew up in the beautiful city of Chandigarh, India. My parents are biologists and knew early on that I had the potential to work in the health care industry. Over time, I realised this as well and selected a career in dentistry, a profession that allowed me to work with my hands and focus on attention to detail.

After completing a Bachelor of Dental Surgery and Masters of Public Health from the University of Wollongong, in 2006 I started practicing as a Dental Surgeon in the tropical city of Cairns. My passion with dentistry has continued to drive me to pursue further goals in the profession; I completed my Primary Exams in the Royal Australian College of Dental Surgeons, and then I spent time at Cairns James Cook University teaching and supervising dental students in their final year while also mentoring first-year students.

I’m passionate about dentistry today as I was 12+ years ago when I started my first job. Seeing patients achieve their oral health goals fuels my commitment to the dental profession, and I look forward to many more years of turning dream smiles into a reality.

Today, I call Cairns my home. It’s where my wife, Vandana, and my two boys, Veer and Viyaan, live, work and play. In my free time, I play soccer with the children, cook for my family and get involved with the local cricket team.

On behalf of the professional team at Cairns Dental Boutique, I look forward to helping our patients into the future and welcoming you and your family to our friendly dental clinic.
