Learning about good oral health is important for everyone, especially the little ones. Unfortunately, many parents do not pay enough attention towards oral hygiene when kids are the most receptive to it: At a very young age! Pediatric dentistry is not about a beautiful smile (yet), it's way more than just that.
Dr. Cameron Zealand at North Calgary Pediatric Dentistry:
"Pediatric dentistry is about educating children about the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene, and how important it is for the rest of your life. This should be a two-way street between the dentist and the parents.
1: As paediatric dentists, we do our part by transferring our knowledge to the parents and child in our kids dental clinics.
2: From there, the parents need to make the effort to ensure that good oral habits happen at home as well. They also need to communicate that a child's dental experience can be positive, rewarding and fun.
At our North Calgary Pediatric Dental Office, we've made the ambience as fun as can be. We've decorated our office with bright colours, made some toys and games available, while our kids-friendly staff helps to make your child feel as comfortable as possible. Each member of our dental team knows how important it is to help each kid stay calm and relaxed before seeing the dentist. And even when your kid is still a little bit afraid — no worries, we can always find other ways to make them feel comfortable, together with you."
has come a long way in recent years. Our child-friendly dental clinic provides the latest techniques and procedures to ensure the most pleasant experience possible
for our young patients. Did you know that pediatric dentist training (besides the dental side) involves child psychology, behaviour analysis, and managing children specifically? A pediatric dentist is, without exaggeration, a specialist in handling all aspects of a child’s oral health and well-being.
