Pediatric Dental Care
Every single member of our team from Dr. Bains to our Registered Dental Assistants, Dental Hygienists, and our Sterilization Assistant have the care of your child in mind. We also have comfortable facilities which will put your child at ease.
We have rigorous COVID-19 safety guidelines that augment our already strict medical instrument/facility cleaning protocols that we employ to ensure that your child stays safe while they are a patient with us.
Also, family-friendly hours for your child’s dental appointments, whether you are looking for early in the day, and early dismissal afternoon, or evening. Lewis Estates Dental Centre also offers appointments from 8 AM to 3 PM on occasional Saturdays for the convenience of your family.
Emergency Pediatric Dentistry
It’s just a fact of life that active children play sports, and generally encounter circumstances that may lead to a dental emergency. We take emergency pediatric dental appointments for kids and teens to deal with toothaches, chipped or broken teeth, dislodged teeth, or soft tissue injuries to the mouth.
We highly encourage you to book an emergency appointment right away in the event of trauma affecting the teeth/mouth to avoid any potential long-term repercussions for your child’s oral health.
Your Child’s First Dental Appointment
According to the Candian Dental Association, your child should see a dentist by the age of one, or within six months of the eruption of their first tooth. This is the beginning of a lifetime of good oral health! We encourage regular exams, cleanings, and can connect you to qualified orthodontists when and if required.

How Often Should Children See A Dentist?
Children’s teeth are especially vulnerable, and keeping an eye on the condition and how permanent teeth are positioned in the mouth as children grow is vital for kids and teens. Children and teenagers should see a dentist every six months to monitor that teeth are developing and erupting properly.
Not only does the six-month frequency ensure that we catch and correct any issues early, but it also helps children start to develop comfort and trust with dental professionals and the process of dentistry throughout their life.
