About Kiddies Infant Care

The team at Kiddies Infant CareIn 2006, Dr Kar Mun Chan (Dental Surgeon) founded Kiddies DentalCare, her specialist paediatric dental practice. The small clinic started in Williamstown and grew in size over the years. We have been blessed to receive so many trusting referrers, wonderful patients and a fantastic team of supportive staff.

In 2010 and 2014, she opened up two additional practice locations in Essendon and Werribee respectively. Then in 2015, recognising the need to help children with tongue-tie, she opened Kiddies Infant Care.

Understanding Tongue-Tie Firsthand

As a mother of two, Dr Chan has herself overcome the challenges of tongue-tie. At our warm and friendly practice, she combines her experience as a paediatric dental specialist with a firsthand understanding of what parents go through, including the struggles of breastfeeding. Kind and compassionate, she treats families going through the difficulties of oral restriction while bringing considerable clinical expertise.

Providing Highly Effective Treatment

The traditional treatment for tongue-tie is a frenotomy, which consists of a simple incision with scissors into the connective tissue to free the tongue from the floor of the mouth. At Kiddies Infant Care, however, we use gentle laser therapy that has many advantages:

  • Minimally invasive
  • More precise
  • Short treatment time of just a few minutes
  • Little to no bleeding
  • Less pain and tissue trauma
  • Entire removal of problematic tissue
  • Quick healing and recovery time

Featuring Educational Workshops

Dr Chan finds it highly fulfilling to provide education to others. She offers workshops for mothers’ groups, maternal child health nurses, professionals who work with infants and those who manage and care for infants and children with oral restrictions.

If your child has tongue-tie, please contact the practice today to schedule an appointment. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have!
