Dentist for children’s oral health care needs in Calgary, AB

Dentist for Children in Calgary AB area

When it comes to finding a dentist to take care of your child’s oral health, it can be difficult to find a dentist that you can trust to treat your child like they would their own. At Lake Chaparral Dental Care in Calgary, AB, we do just that! We make dental visits for children fun and informative while ensuring that their teeth and gums are healthy and developing properly.

The importance of early dental care

Your child’s early dental care experiences are important for many reasons:

  • Having good experiences at the dentist from an early age can help your child develop a positive attitude towards dental care and can reduce the possibility of dental anxieties or phobias from developing
  • We can help educate both you and your child about good dental hygiene for their life stage, laying the foundation for a lifetime of healthy hygiene habits
  • Regular check-ups provide reassurance that your child’s mouth is developing normally and, should any issues arise, enable us to detect them at an early stage when they are easiest to treat

We believe so firmly in the importance of early dental care that we provide your child’s first dental visit free of charge!

Exams and cleanings

When your child comes in for their regular examination and cleaning, we perform several steps to ensure that your child has a healthy, happy smile. This includes updating your child’s medical history since their last visit, performing a thorough examination (including x-rays if needed to view the internal jawbone and tooth structures that aren’t visible by visual examination alone), and professionally cleaning and polishing your child’s teeth. We finish the visit with a fluoride treatment to help protect your child’s teeth and take the time to tell you how your child’s mouth is doing and answer any questions you may have.

If your child is due for a dental visit, call Lake Chaparral Dental Care in Calgary, AB today to schedule their appointment! We can be reached at (403) 768-2271 if your child is a new patient, or (403) 278-5272 if your child is an existing patient.
