New Patient Info

What to expect during your first visit

A little bit of fun! First impressions for you and your child are important!

We aim for a positive start. Our first visit serves to introduce your child to our staff and office setting. We review medical and dental history and gently examine their oral health, gums, and jaws. Radiographs may be taken to help detect cavities between tightly touching teeth and to check on developing permanent teeth. Our staff will provide parents and children with education on oral hygiene, growth and development and prevention and diet counseling.

Making your child feel comfortable during your visit.

Positive early visits to the office will help your child establish a trusting relationship with our staff. We pride ourselves on our compassionate and understanding care. Pediatric dentists also have additional and unique training after dental school which allows us to offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) oral sedation and treatment under general anesthesia in the hospital setting. We will discuss your child`s unique needs and personalities with you and plan the best treatment for your child.

Payment information

  • Fees charged for services rendered are from the current fee guide of the Ontario Association of Dental Specialists.
