At Country Dental, our pediatric dentists have experience with children and education in child psychology. They know how to treat your child to ensure they are calm and have an enjoyable experience.
Children’s dental care begins at an early age. Monitoring your child’s dental health is a priority. It is always recommended that you take your child to see a children’s dentist at the first sign of a child’s first tooth.

However, with years of experience in pediatric dentistry, dealing with hundreds of young patients, our children’s dentist will cater to your child’s needs, ensuring that the dental care they receive is comfortable, friendly, and enjoyable.
During the 1970s, only about 50% of Canadians regularly visited a dentist. By 2010, that number increased to about 75%. In that 40-year period, the improvements in dental health have been dramatic in Canada.
According to a Canadian Dental Association Report:
Kids of all ages should visit their children’s dentist at least once a year (and perhaps more if necessary). For more information about dental care for your child, contact one of our three Ontario dental clinics;
We also offer dental financing through PayBright.

Oral care is an important factor in your child’s daily living. Not only is it important for keeping your child’s smile white (and breath smelling fresh), children’s dental care can also prevent nasty gum diseases and oral complications. It is recommended you see take your child to a dentist at least twice a year for teeth cleaning.
Not everyone is born with perfect teeth. That is why our in-house orthodontists treat each client specifically so your smile will shine. We offer children’s dental care 7 days a week so we are very accessible for the dental needs of your child.
Children’s dental care for infants should happen almost immediately after birth. Plaque and bacteria will begin to collect on an infant’s gums after feeding. Ensure that your child’s food intake is monitored and that you clean your baby’s gums on a regular basis to avoid gum disease.
During the toddler years is when your child’s baby teeth will start to grow in. This is also a fundamental stage for children’s dental care for toddlers, especially for learning to brush and floss their teeth. Teaching your child how to maintain tooth health by advising against sweets is advantageous during this critical time.
This critical point of children’s dental care and knowledge is when your child will lose their baby teeth and have their permanent teeth grow in. This is when proper oral care habits must be set in stone, such as brushing and flossing in the morning and evening.
The teen years of a child’s tooth development can be a time where a teen must monitor their teeth very attentively. This is also the time when they determine whether they have tooth issues such as uneven teeth, overbite’s, underbite’s, and crossbite’s.
