Your SW Calgary Choice for Children's Dentistry!
Start your child off on the right path to a lifetime of optimal oral health with Wentworth Family Dental!
As parents ourselves, we understand the unique fears and concerns that children often have when it comes to visiting the dentist, and we have years of experience in child hygiene and treatment. We believe that visits to the dentist should always be a positive experience, and we do our very best to treat young patients and encourage proper dental care and hygiene in a warm, friendly, and comfortable environment.
We Offer Free Dental appointments to Children Under the Age of Two!
At Wentworth Family Dental, we like to introduce our youngest patients to the dentist with a gentle checkup and cleaning, also referred to as a “happy visit.” Happy visits are complimentary to all children under the age of two and are an excellent way to introduce our youngest patients to our dental clinic environment, while also encouraging and supporting early dental care and maintenance.
When should children have their first dental visit?
At Wentworth Family Dental, we like to follow the recommendation of the Canadian Dental Association that children have their first dental examination when their first tooth erupts, or by one year of age, whichever comes first. As a general rule, regular checkups every 6 months should then be completed so that good oral health can be maintained, and any issues may be treated while they are relatively small. However, your dentist will determine if checkups should be performed more or less frequently, depending on each patient.
