Early Positive Dental Experiences
At St. Laurent Dental Centre, we're committed to helping children feel at ease during their dental appointments so they can maintain good oral health today and into adulthood.
Our team of dental professionals offer a complete range of dental services for Ottawa kids and their developing smiles. Each of us is dedicated to providing children with the most positive dental experiences possible.
We understand that going to the dentist can be an intimidating experience for many children, so we strive to keep the environment calm, friendly and inviting. Our team will work at your child's pace, take breaks if they become overwhelmed, and explain each step of the process at we go along.
Your Child's First Visit
Your child should be seen by a dentist within six months of their first tooth erupting, or by their first birthday at the latest. This early appointment allows your child's dentist to assess your child's smile and spot any potential issues before they become more serious concerns.
Dental Services for Kids
At St. Laurent Dental Centre, our services can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs, and keep their smile healthy.
Preventive Dental Hygiene
Visiting the dentist for regular hygiene cleanings and exams while your child is young will help preserve the primary teeth until they are ready to fall out and be replaced by the permanent teeth. At each appointment, your dentist or hygienist will review proper oral hygiene techniques with your child to ensure that their smile is getting the care it needs at home.
Restorative Dental Services
If your child is at risk of decay, develops a cavity, or plays sports, your dentist may also recommend restorative treatments such as fluoride treatments and dental fillings, or recommend that your child wear a sports guard during games.
