Dentistry for Children at Oval Dental Centre

The British Columbia Dental Association recommends a child's first dental visit should occur by age one or within six months of when you see the first tooth.

Regular dental examinations support good health. The earlier your child visits the dentist, the better the chance of preventing a problem, such as decay. This can also increase your child's comfort with the experience. At the clinic, the dentist will:

  • Examine your child's mouth

  • Address any problems before they become more serious

  • Monitor the development of your child's teeth

  • Provide tips to care for your child's teeth and gums

  • Fluoride may be applied to strengthen their teeth.

 

Preparing your child for their dental visit

To help create a positive experience for your child:

  • Schedule an appointment for a time when your child will be well rested and relaxed

  • Treat the appointment as routine and bring along a favourite toy or blanket
