Brush, rinse, floss, repeat – here’s our list of Hong Kong’s dental clinics for all your needs
With growing teeth and potential for cavities, some experts recommend taking your child to the dentist by age 1 or around six months after the emergence of their first tooth. Finding the right dentist for your child is often a guessing game, but we did the legwork and have found Hong Kong’s best dental clinics to maintain healthy pearly whites for the whole family! We’ve also rounded up a list of paediatric dental clinics and orthodontists (for when your tween or teen needs to sort out their smiles, especially if they were thumb suckers!), and added some cosmetic dentistry spots, too!
General Dental Clinics
Bayley & Jackson Dental Surgeons Ltd.
This dental clinic performs general dentistry as well as prosthodontics, endodontics (dental specialty concerned with the study and treatment of the dental pulp), periodontics and braces. Bayley & Jackson Dental Surgeons Ltd. also offers invisible orthodontics, which is the latest treatment for invisible teeth straightening and an alternative for teens and adults who don’t want to wear the traditional braces.
