Dentistry for Children 

in red deer with our family dentists

It’s never too early to start thinking about dental care for your kids. When you introduce your children to the dentist at an early age, you are laying the groundwork for a lifetime of good oral health. We encourage all families with children to visit Parkland Mall Dental Centre for dentistry services in Red Deer!



Why Bring Your Kid to a Dentist at an Early Age?

As children grow, their teeth change. First, come baby teeth, followed later by permanent teeth. Ideally, parents should bring their children to the dentist for their first checkup within six months of the eruption of the first tooth or by one year of age. Later, regular checkups are required every 6 to 12 months so that your child’s dentistry can examine their oral hygiene, diet, and growth patterns. Earlier dental checkups make it easier to build a good rapport with your child to lay a foundation of trust and comfort for future visits.

The First Visit to the Dentist with Your Child

Our dentists believe that healthy oral care for your kids begins with education. Kids are found to be reluctant to visit a dentist. At Parkland Mall Dental Centre, we make kids feel comfortable so that they can enjoy their experience at our clinic. During the first visit of your kid to a dentist, you can expect your child enjoying in the dental chair, and getting instructions on how to brush teeth properly and counting of teeth


Benefits of Starting Good Habits for Oral Hygiene

  • Primary teeth are placeholders and guides for permanent teeth. If proper dental checkup is not done, a child may lose a baby tooth and therefore much space will be lost. So, dental visit at the right time is beneficial.
  • Without the front teeth, children will find it difficult to articulate sounds properly. For proper speech development, a dental visit for your kid is important.
  • Generally, tooth pain is terrible. It is found that a child needs to be rested and pain-free prior to getting ready for school.
  • When children start going to kindergarten, they notice how their peers look and behave, and their peers also observe them. A healthy smile develops self-confidence.
  • Children need healthy and strong teeth to eat foods. Regular dental visits help your child get strong teeth to chew with.
