Regular dental care is essential for children of all ages from infancy to toddler, adolescence, and beyond. Our services can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs.
Early Positive Dental Experiences
Our dental team is committed to helping children of all ages feel at ease during their dental appointments so they can maintain good oral health today and into adulthood.
We offer a wide range of dental services for North York kids and their developing smiles, and are dedicated to providing your child with the most positive dental experience possible each time they visit our clinic.
We realize that going to the dentist can be an intimidating experience, so we strive to keep the environment calm, friendly and inviting. We will work at your child's pace, take breaks if they get overwhelmed, and explain each step of the process.
Your Child's First Visit
Infants should first be seen by a dentist between the ages of 6 -12 months of age. By this time, the baby's first teeth, or primary teeth, are beginning to erupt and it is a critical time to spot any problems before they become big concerns.
Dental Services for Kids
At Sheppard Yorkland Dental, our services can be tailored to meet your child's unique oral health needs, and keep their smile healthy.
Preventive Dental Hygiene
Visiting the dentist for regular exams and cleanings when your child is young will help preserve the primary teeth until they are ready to fall out and be replaced by their permanent adult teeth. At each appointment, we will review proper oral hygiene techniques to ensure your child's smile is getting the proper care at home.
Restorative Dental Services
If your child is at increased risk of decay, develops a cavity, or is experiencing misalignment issues, your dentist may also recommend restorative treatments such as dental fillings and mouth guards.
