Happy, Healthy Smiles
For anyone, particularly children, going to the dentist can be intimidating. That's why at Topsmiles Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, we offer specialized treatment tailored to meet your child’s specific needs.
Working to Keep Your
It's crucial to start early with dental care, and we're dedicated to making the process as seamless as possible. Dr. Adriana Salles and Dr. Mitch Vodrey use a reassuring and enjoyable approach and will let your child know just what’s going to happen during their visit.
As per the guidelines of the Canadian Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the Canadian Dental Association, it is recommended to take your child for their first dental visit within six months after their first tooth erupts and definitely before their first birthday.
Although this might sound young, finding a dentist for your child at an early age is essential for ensuring their long-term oral health.
Dr. Salles, Dr. Vodrey, and the Topsmiles team understand the unique physical and emotional needs of children. They are fully equipped to provide them with the most positive dental experience possible.
What To Expect at Your First Appointment
During your first visit, we’ll customize the experience to match your child’s age, personality, and particular requirements. While some kids might need time to become comfortable with the surroundings and individuals, others may be prepared for a dental exam, cleaning, and topical fluoride treatment right off the bat.
Your child’s doctor will conduct a thorough evaluation of their teeth and mouth, as well as provide you with the necessary knowledge and tools to prevent potential dental issues from developing. We prioritize preventive measures, and X-rays will only be taken when they are crucial to diagnosing a specific dental problem since we aim to minimize their use.
Benefits of Early Dental Care
Keeping baby teeth healthy will prevent issues with your child’s eventual permanent tooth growth. Neglecting a child’s cavities can cause pain and infection, leading to problems with their developing permanent teeth.
We understand that your child’s first dental visit can be stressful for you as a parent as well. Dr. Salles and Dr. Vodrey are always happy to answer any questions you have and to give both you and your child the best dental experience possible.
