WE ARE CHILD FRIENDLY!!!!!!
We want to make your child’s
dental visit a happy one! It is very important
that we progress at your child’s own pace, when at
their visit. A child’s first visit can be as simple
as a ride in the chair for show and tell, or as much
as an exam and fun cleaning. Our tools become
dental friends turning into Mr. Slurpy, Miss
Tickler and Mr. Tooth Counter! The kids always
leave happy and with prizes in hand.
Our new Treasure Tower, is a big
hit with kids and they enjoy nothing more than
getting their tokens at the end of their
appointment. Being a cozy and personal office, we
like to build relationships with our patients and
the kids are such an important part of our dental
family. After working closely with children for
many years, we are comfortable and confident in
making every appointment a great one.
When should your child’s first
dental visit be? The Ontario Dental Association
now suggests shortly after the first tooth erupts.
This visit would be mainly for nutritional
counseling, and suggestions for cleaning the newly
erupted teeth at such an early age. We advise that
by age 2, each child should come to either mom or
dad’s dental appointment. At this time we try to
familiarize the child with us, and allow the child
to have a ride in the chair, counting of teeth,
tickling of teeth…….as much, or as little as the
child will allow.
