How to Choose the Right Dentist for Your Child

Excellent pediatric dentistry provided by a compassionate and enthusiastic team sets your child up for a lifetime of healthy teeth.

Too often, we see adults with anxiety and phobia in our Etobicoke dental office. These are adults who had a bad experience at the dentist as a child. It prevents them from getting the care they need when they need it. In our dental office, we believe that positive associations with the dentist early on are the key to a lifetime of healthy teeth.

The Right Dentist for Your Child

When looking for a dentist for your child, it is essential that he or she feels good with the dental care provider. The team should introduce your child to the office slowly, allowing a natural acclimation to reduce stress.

It is also vital that the dentist takes time to answer your questions and explain the state of your child’s teeth and gums. A good team will also provide you with the best information and tips so you can optimize your child’s at-home routine. This information should include:

  • How to brush your child’s teeth
  • How often to brush your child’s teeth
  • When to introduce dental floss
  • Nutritional information for healthier teeth
  • Signs your child is ready to brush on his or her own

Your child’s dentist should also offer comprehensive services to serve your child’s smile into adulthood—both preventive and general dentistry services.

Our children’s dentistry in Etobicoke considers all these things and more. We simply love children, and our goal is always to instill healthy habits, dental-chair ease, and smile pride in each little one we treat.
