Pediatric Dentistry

At Centre Clinico-Dentaire, we absolutely love children. They are the future of what we are trying to accomplish with our practice. Children should be brought to the dentist by the age of one for their first dental exam so as to get the ball rolling as soon as possible. It is a fun learning experience for everyone. You’ll know exactly how to care for your child’s mouth and diagnose easily addressed issues early on. Your child on the other end will take a ride on the high-tech dentist’s chair, become familiar with the office setting, and have fun getting a thorough teeth cleaning.

Establishing good oral habits at a young age is the key to maintaining that hygiene for the rest of your life. Our office is catered to introducing your toddler to the dentist.

How old should be my child before visiting the dentist?

Many parents are not aware that a child should visit the dentist at least once by the time they reach one year of age. Assessing your child’s risks for cavities and other issues at the earliest possible time is extremely important. Having a game plan early means you can be prepared in case of anything.

During your child's first appointment, we will discuss:

  • How to care for your child's mouth
  • Proper Use of Fluoride
  • Oral habits, including finger and thumb sucking
  • Ways to prevent accidents that could damage the face and teeth
  • Teething and milestones of development
  • The link between diet and oral health

For older children, we will:

  • Provide a thorough exam to check for cavities and proper development
  • Take dental x-rays, clean their teeth and give fluoride treatment
  • Give oral hygiene instructions
  • We will then schedule follow-up appointments (for routine maintenance or any treatment required including fillings and sealants)
  • The link between diet and oral health
