Having your children visit the dentist regularly from when they are one or two years of age is important to ensure that their teeth stay clean and beautiful and are developing correctly. Dr. Garth Riopelle provides a full range of children’s dentistry procedures including fillings, crowns, sealants, fluoride application and emergency dentistry.
We pride ourselves on our professionalism and care provided to all of our patients, right down to the smallest ones. Our family-friendly scheduling also makes it easy to fit your children’s dentist appointment in around school and sports practice.
Children’s dentistry requires a slightly different skill set to adults dentistry, in that you have to know how to make children feel comfortable and safe while they are receiving their care. You need to set the child up with good experiences so that they continue to take an active role in their own dental care as they move into adulthood.
Our clinic is child-friendly with TVs in the patient rooms that they can watch Netflix on, comfortable blankets to keep them warm and yummy drinks available at our beverage bar. You do not need to worry that your child will not like their trip to the dentist when you make an appointment with us.
Kids, like adults, need to get their teeth checked regularly by an experienced dentist. Early care and intervention is always the best option when it comes to health. It does not matter that your child’s baby teeth will come out and be replaced by adult teeth, they still need to be cared for and checked by a dentist just the same.
When you visit us with your child, we will treat any oral problems as well as give you advice on the proper way to care for their teeth when you are at home. It is never too early to instill good dental hygiene habits.
Just as with adults, it is recommended that your children visit us for a general checkup twice a year. By visiting regularly, we will be able to treat any problems with your child’s teeth as soon as they occur and set them up for a great future with a healthy and great smile.
