Children's Dentist in Oakville
An important part of your childís future is a healthy, beautiful smile. It starts very early in life with their first appointment, on-going preventive dentistry and teaching your child the dental skills to guard their oral health and cherish the value of their teeth and gums for life. Itís our goal at Trafalgar Village Dental to do that and more for every child we see at our Oakville dental office. After all, we are parents too and we want the same for our kids!
You can help make the first visit to the dentist enjoyable and positive by informing your child of the visit and explaining that the dentist and staff are caring and friendly. The less specific about the visit, the better; simply tell your child that we are going to teach him/how to brush and floss.
Parents are welcome to accompany their child for cleanings and new patient visits. All of our staff members at Trafalgar Village Dental are highly trained in helping children overcome anxiety, and we will even allow your child to sit in your lap if necessary.
