We love kids and we pride ourselves at being New Westminsters leading family and pediatric dental clinic! Because we feel that learning how to take care of your teeth begins when you are young, we recommend bringing children into the office at around 12 -18 months to get them acquainted with the office and the staff. Then at around age 2, we recommend bringing them in so the pediatric Dentist can count their teeth and our Hygienist can clean them. If we treat a child before any cavities get started they will have a life long positive outlook on dental care.

Working Together

Ideally, your first visit is designed to give both you and us a total picture of your present condition and needs. To provide this properly, we require important information. This is obtained by taking medical and dental histories and a thorough oral examination including x-rays and possibly study models. Following the examination we will discuss our findings with you and recommend treatment. Any questions you have about treatment are important because they enable you to be a participant in making decisions regarding your dental care. Please don’t hesitate to ask questions.

Prevention

Generally speaking, tooth decay and gum disease are preventable. With proper home care and preventative dentistry, your dental treatment needs and the investment required will be much reduced.
