Your child’s first experiences at the dentist can help shape the future of his or her overall oral health. If you’re looking for a caring, compassionate dentist who caters to children, look no further than Summerland Dental Centre. We’re pleased to offer comprehensive children’s dentistry in a warm, comfortable office setting.

A Focus on Education

At Summerland Dental Centre, we believe that a big part of children’s dentistry involves teaching patients how to properly care for their teeth. Many children learn their most important oral hygiene habits by visiting our practice, including:

  • Brushing
  • Flossing
  • How to avoid tooth decay

But Summerland Dental Centre does more than just teach children about proper oral care. Our team of dedicated dental professionals go the extra mile for your child, because we are moms and dads too.

Baby (or Primary) teeth are important as they not only hold space for permanent adult teeth, but they are important to chewing, biting, speech and appearance. Like adults, these are critical factors for a child’s self-esteem and confidence. For this reason it is important to maintain a healthy diet and daily hygiene. Our team will offer sound solutions to starting your child’s hygiene ritual off,  as a memorable and fun experience.

Some First Visit Tips

  • Take your child for a “preview” or online tour of the office.
  • Read books with them about going to the dentist.
  • Review with them what the dentist will be doing at the time of the first visit.
  • Speak positively about your own dental experiences.
