We want to make your children’s visit a happy experience. We have a play area in the lobby, cartoons on the ceiling TV when they sit in the dental chair, and a comfortable blanket or stuffed toy to cuddle with. All our care is provided with a gentle touch, and your kids are rewarded with a trip to the goodie area when it is all over!
During each visit, our staff in children’s dentistry spends a great deal of time explaining to your child what can be expected during the treatment. This is done in a very positive way to help the child feel comfortable, and to give him or her some control over what will be happening. You can help us make this next visit a successful and positive experience by working with us to accomplish this goal.
We believe that all our patients have the right to feel relaxed. We offer sedation dentistry that lets you rest comfortably as we attend to your teeth. We will have completed treatment by the time you are wide awake, letting you use that scented towel to wipe your face and leave the practice feeling happy.
This is a fee estimate & subject to change. Please check with your clinician for an exact fee based on your unique clinical condition.

Children can start to get cavities as soon as the first teeth emerge. It is very important that the first dental visit is pleasant, not anxiety-producing. Going to see the dentist only when the child has problems does not allow this as the child will then associate the dental clinic with fear and pain. This makes any further dental treatment difficult.
Your child’s baby teeth are more important than you think. Children need strong, healthy teeth to chew their food, speak and have a good-looking smile. Baby teeth also help to keep a space in the jaw for the adult teeth. If a baby tooth is lost too early, the teeth beside it may drift into the empty space. When it’s time for the adult teeth to come in, there may not be enough room, causing the teeth to be crooked or crowded. Severe infection in the baby tooth can also damage the shape and colour of the adult tooth that is forming just below the baby tooth.
