Children's Dentists in Seoul/ Isu Children's Dentist Clinic

I took J for his first dental check-up when he hit 18 months.  The government had sent us a free check-up voucher but all of the available dentist offices were not for children and when I tried to take J to one of them they refused to check him because he's so young (I don't blame them).  So I decided to find a children's dentist near our house and I was impressed both with the design and atmosphere of the clinic and also the price for a check-up - 2,000 W (2$US).

We went to Isu Children's Dentist Clinic 이수 어린이 치과 Daum Link

The clinic is huge and has all sorts of rooms for kids to play in.  Here J is playing in the toy/computer room.  There are fish aquariums, trains, toys, kid's painting, ect. all over the place.  Super kid-friendly.

The clinic even has a kid's toilet.  How cute is that?

Here J is preparing to battle the dentist and nurse.  As soon as they touched him he screamed and cried but they were quick and efficient.

While the children get their teeth checked, this train goes round and round.  I've heard that other kid's dentist clinics play Pororo movies.

According to the dentist, a child should go for his or her first check up at 1 year, then come back every 3 months.  At 2 years of age, fluoride is introduced.  We haven't reached that point yet but I will blog about it when we do.

The clinic I went to is located in Sadong-dong next to Isu St. exit 7 above Holly's Coffee, 6th floor.  It's the only one I could find in either Gwanak-gu or Dongjak-gu (Isu Station, Sadang Station, Sangdo Station).  Here's a sky view from Daum maps:

  3. Baby's teeth usually stay in place until "pushed out" by a permanent tooth that takes

    its place. Unfortunately, some children lose baby teeth too early. A tooth may be

    knocked out accidentally or be removed due to severe disease. When this occurs, a space

    maintainer may be required to prevent future dental problems. Space maintainers

    encourage normal development of the jaw bones and muscles, and save space for the

    permanent teeth and help guide them into position.These prospects should be considered

    while searching for a pediatric dentist.
