What To Expect At Your Child’s First Dental Appointment
We want to make sure your child enjoys their first dental visit so they’ll look forward to trips to Lakewood Dental Centre for years to come. Our friendly team will get your child excited about their visit. Your little one is also encouraged to bring along any siblings.
Every child’s first visit is different. We’ll take into account your child’s needs and comfort level before deciding how to proceed. Following the exam, your child will be given a dental package also including stickers and a Brave Patient Award to our local neighborhood Subway restaurant.
The Benefits Of Dental Visits For Children
By bringing your child in for an early dental visit, it allows us to let you know if there are any dental health issues you should be concerned about as your child gets older. We can discuss the need for braces, at-home brushing and flossing techniques, and whether there are any bad habits threatening the health of your child’s smile.
Orthodontics For Your Family
Not only can Lakewood Dental Centre see your entire family for teeth cleanings and dental exams, but general dentist Dr. McDermid can treat your family members’ crooked teeth with braces. Our Lakewood Dental Centre options for straightening out a crooked smile are:
- Smart Moves
- K-Line clear aligners
- Braces with a nickel titanium wire
- Traditional braces
Don’t neglect your child’s baby teeth, or your child might grow up and neglect their adult teeth. Schedule your child’s first dental visit with Lakewood Dental Centre by phone at (204) 977-8515 or from your computer or smartphone using our online form.
