Just like adults, regular dental care is essential to your child's healthy smile. At Prairie Mall Dental Clinic in Grande Prairie, we're passionate about setting kids on the right path to excellent lifelong oral health.
Early Positive Dental Experiences
At Prairie Mall Dental Clinic, we're dedicated to helping children feel relaxed during their dental appointments so they can uphold excellent oral health today and into their adult years.
We provide a complete range of dental services for Grande Prairie kids and their growing smiles, and are committed to offering your child a positive dental experience that will help them develop an honest, trusting relationship with their dentist.
We realize that attending dental appointments can be an intimidating experience for some children, so our first priority is to foster a calm, friendly and inviting environment. We explain each step of the process clearly, work at your child's pace, and take breaks if they become overwhelmed.
Your Child's First Visit
Your baby should see a dentist for the first time after they reach six months of age or at least by their first birthday. Around this time, a baby's first teeth, or primary teeth, are starting to erupt. These checkups allow your child's dentist to spot any issues before they become ongoing concerns.
Dental Services for Kids
Our services at Prairie Mall Dental Clinic can be customized to fulfill your child's oral health needs, and help them keep their smile healthy.
Preventive Dental Hygiene
It's essential for your child to visit the dentist for regular exams and cleanings when they are young to help preserve the primary teeth until they become loose and are ready to be replaced naturally by permanent teeth. At each appointment, we will discuss proper preventive hygiene techniques with your child to ensure their smile is receiving the proper care and attention at home.
Restorative Dental Services
If your child's teeth are at risk of decay, or they experience misalignment issues or develop a cavity, your dentist may also recommend a restorative treatment such as a dental filling or mouth guard.
