At our dental clinic in Fort Saskatchewan, AB, we are advocates of teaching healthy dental habits at a young age, and are happy to offer dentistry for children.
When should I bring my child in to see the dentist?
We recommend bringing your child in for their first dental visit by about the age of two or three. It’s important to remember that children have thinner enamel and smaller teeth than adults do, and as a result, they are more prone to decay and cavities, leading to pain or early loss of baby teeth. Bringing your kids in to see the dentist at a young age can help us proactively spot oral health issues before they arise, with a higher chance of their first dental experience being positive and incident-free.
A child-friendly dental clinic in Fort Saskatchewan, AB
At their first dental appointment, our team will go the extra mile to ensure your child feels safe with us. Keeping kids occupied and calm prior to a dental appointment can work wonders for managing anxiety levels and maintaining a relaxed state of mind. With a friendly team and a “kids zone” in our waiting room full of gentle entertainment such as colouring books, literature, movies, and dental trivia on our monitors, we’re confident you and your kids will look forward to visiting us.
Once your child is in with the dentist, we will count their teeth and share brushing and flossing best practices with a hand-held mirror so they can follow along. At this visit, we will discuss the various preventive care treatments available at our clinic, including fluoride treatment, mouth/sports guards, and dental sealants. After their dental exam, we will take our time to answer all of your questions and explain the steps of any recommended treatment plan in full detail.
