Point McKay Dental is pleased to provide dental care to patients of ALL ages and stages of life. From infants and toddlers, all the way through adolescence and adulthood, Point McKay Dental is here for you! We tailor all of our services to each patient, and we are especially sensitive to our youngest patients and their particular concerns. As parents ourselves, we understand the unique fears and concerns that children have when it comes to visiting the dentist. We want to ensure that children develop and maintain a consistent oral hygiene routine that will continue into adulthood, and we know that ensuring visits to the dentists are a relaxed and comfortable experience will help encourage this.
We always do our very best to provide the highest level of care possible, in a friendly, caring and relaxing environment, so that our very youngest patients leave enthusiastic and excited about carrying on their oral health journey. At Point McKay Dental, we will include you fully in a dental care program designed to help you take care of your children’s dental and oral health, including how to teach your child to brush and floss in a way that is fun and enjoyable.
Point McKay Dental believes in the importance of children beginning their dental experience at an early age, which is why we follow the recommendation made by the Canadian Dental Association that children have an assessment by a dentist within six months of the eruption of the first tooth or by one year of age, whichever comes first. Point McKay Dental is pleased to offer free “Happy Visits” to children under the age of 3, which is a great opportunity to introduce children to the clinic atmosphere and dental visits generally. It also allows them to become more comfortable with the entire dental office experience. Tooth decay is considered the most common chronic childhood disease and accounts for hundreds of hours of lost school time. By assessing your child every six months to one year, we can identify and treat problematic areas in the mouth with procedures to treat existing cavities and fluoride treatments to strengthen the teeth between cleanings. Early dental visits also help us identify problems that may affect proper nutritional intake due to an improper bite, treat developmental concerns related to speech development, provide habit control treatment for thumb sucking and other oral habits that may impact the health of the teeth and gums, as well as to diagnose any problems with how the teeth are erupting and plan for future orthodontic intervention.
Our team of dental professionals will emphasize the importance of how proper brushing, flossing, and healthy nutrition impacts their oral health in a fun, interactive, and positive manner. By following these guidelines, our goal is to help your child grow up with healthy teeth and gums that will last them a lifetime!
Point McKay Dental is committed to ensuring that children begin their positive oral journey early on, so that their teeth, gums and overall smile are healthy from day one! We are here to encourage a love of oral hygiene that will last a lifetime. Point McKay Dental is pleased to offer dental care to children of ALL ages, and we take special care to ensure that our youngest patients feel safe and comfortable at all times.
