Welcome To DinoDent. Your Child Friendly Dentist. Our mission is to make kids smile and our staff is passionate about building healthy habits to last a lifetime.


DinoDent is a child focused dental practice, providing treatment in a fun and positive way. As I am a parent myself, I know how important it is to work with children in a very patient, creative and playful way. DinoDent has a dinosaur dental chair that has a DVD player and an octopus that hides the instruments! You won't find any scary syringes here. A cute crocodile sleeve hides the syringe and the electronic dental wand takes the pain out of the prick. Come play at the dentist with a jungle-gym, XBOX 360, DVD’s and lots more!


Are you looking for a child focused dentist or someone to provide braces for your child? Then DinoDent is the right dental practice for your child! I have a masters in Paediatric dentistry, a diploma (together with multiple courses) in Orthodontic treatment.

I love children and, as a mother, I know how frightening it can be to go to the dentist. DinoDent has the best "state of the art equipment", including:

- A dinosaur dental chair that has a tablet (with Showmax) and an octopus that hide the instruments.

- Dog Therapy: "Mauzie" is a beautiful calm miniature schnauzer that loves to sit on the kids laps while dental work is done.

- A highly specialized X-ray machine that can show panoramic views of both the baby and permanent teeth together.

- An "AquaCare" machine that cleans cavities with water and salt instead of a drill.

- A "Dental Wand" (electric injection) that looks like a pen and is less painful and daunting for both parent and child.

Come play at the dentist with a jungle-gym, playstation, dvd's and lots more!
