Complete Dental Care for Teenagers

For more than 25 years, Melbourne families have trusted Complete Dental Care to give their teens the confidence that comes with a smile they’re proud of.

Many parents remember the bulky metal wires and brackets they had fitted as a teen – it wasn’t much fun.  Materials and solutions have moved forward dramatically in recent years.

Following an initial assessment, our team will explain the options available and discuss with your son or daughter the options that may best suit their needs and temperament, to achieve the optimum result.

Complete Dental Care’s team of highly-qualified dentists have been working together for the best part of a decade. This gives you stability and certainty knowing you’ll see the same dentist every time.

Our practice on St Kilda Road is a relaxed and friendly environment where teens feel they can be themselves. We want your teen to understand and be engaged throughout the process – so from their first visit, we’ll work with them so they understand what’s happening at every step.

If your teen is looking for a dentist with experience in Orthodontics in Melbourne, preferably near their school, we invite you to come in and check us out together. We usually begin working with teens once their adult teeth have come through, between 11 and 13 years.

Why Teens and Families Choose CDC for Orthodontics

Finding a dentist with experience in Orthodontics can be tough. So we asked our patients what they love most about us. Here’s what they said:

  • Near Schools. We’re conveniently located on St Kilda Road, a short tram ride from many of Melbourne’s leading high schools and secondary colleges.
  • Clear and Invisible Solutions. Our dentists use the most modern orthodontic solutions available, including Invisalign, tooth-coloured braces and clear aligners.
  • Advanced 3D We utilize the most advanced 3D scanning and modelling technology to make sure your teen can see and understand what’s happening from the outset.
  • Our treatment rooms include a television strategically mounted on the ceiling to entertain or distract them.
  • Open Thursday Evenings and Saturdays by appointment. As many parents and teenagers are busy during the week, we’re also open on Saturdays until the early afternoon.
