Our dentist in Calgary has many years of experience in providing care for pediatric patients. We know how to make your children feel safe, comfortable, and relaxed during their dental appointments. We recommend that you book your young one’s first dental appointment as soon as their first tooth comes in or by the end of their first year, whichever comes first.

What to Expect
We have created a child-friendly space to help our younger patients feel at ease during their time with us. We utilize tried and tested dental techniques and innovative dental technology to offer excellent, patient-centric care to everyone who visits our dental practice, regardless of age.
Primary teeth are temporary, but that doesn’t make them any less important than permanent teeth. Ensuring proper oral health for young children safeguards their well-being in the long run. A child that enjoys dental health in their early years can eat properly, thus allowing them to access the nutrition that they require for healthy growth. Milk teeth also lay a foundation for the permanent teeth. The more robust the foundation, the more likely that the child will grow into an adult with healthy, secondary teeth.
Our dentist prefers a collaborative approach to treatment, so make sure you voice any concerns that you may have during your child’s appointment.
Like adults, children should come in for dental exams and cleanings twice per year, or every six months. Our dentist will advise you accordingly if they determine that your child needs more frequent appointments.
We’re also well-versed in the provision of emergency dental care for children who have sustained injuries or other types of dental emergencies. Call Zen Dental today to experience outstanding services in children’s dentistry.
Children’s Dentistry FAQs (Zen Dental)
Here are some frequently asked questions about children’s dental care at our pediatric dental clinic.
Why is Pediatric Dentistry Important?
It provides all the care your child will need to ensure that their teeth stay in great shape and maintain healthy oral hygiene practices.
At What Age Should a Child Start Going to a Dentist?
Most dentists recommend that a child see a dentist once their first teeth come in, around six months. This way, the dentist can ensure no abnormalities or potential issues later.
Why Should My Child See a Pediatric Dentist?
Because the earlier they develop healthy habits, including going to the dentist, the better their oral health will be in the future.
What Happens at the First Dentist Appointment?
The first dentist appointment is fairly simple. The dentist will mainly check to see that your baby is developing their teeth and that there are no underlying issues.
How Do I Prepare My Child For Their First Dentist Appointment?
It’s important to remain calm and positive. You don’t want to make your child afraid of the dentist by acting scared or anxious.
