New Patients Are Always Welcome at Our Practice!
Each of our dentists and members of the support team at Smile Town Burnaby looks forward to meeting you and welcoming your children to our practice!
Our Practice is Designed Specially For Your Children
It's unlike anything you'll experience anywhere! We want your children to feel at ease from the moment they first walk into our practice, so we've designed a very special environment. Your children will be greeted by our friendly, personable reception team, and then they'll wait for their appointment in our cheerful, kid-friendly reception area or Theatre Room.
Everywhere you look at Smile Town Dentistry in Burnaby, you'll find toys, books and activities to help keep your children busy and occupied while they wait.
We know that visiting the dentist, or doing anything unfamiliar, for the first time can be unnerving and intimidating for children. All the fun stuff at our practice can be a great help in making anxious kids feel more at ease, and keeping their minds free of fretting or worrying.
Your Child's First Consultation With Our Dentists
Your child's first appointment with the Smile Town children's dentists is focused on our getting to know each other. We'll have a comfortable chat, during which our team will be able to get a feel for what your child is like, and you and your child will be able to ask any questions you may have about dental care.
We'll also thoroughly review your child's medical and dental health history, in order to better determine the course his or her treatment should take.
During the initial consultation, we'll show you and your child around our office. Your child will have a chance to try out the dentist's chair, look at the tools and instruments we use, and generally get used to the dental office environment in a low-key way.
Check-up & Cleaning
Once the tour and the initial consultation are complete, we'll start your child's first check up. During this first check up, we will throughly examine your child's teeth, gums, mouth, jaw, face and head.
We'll also take x-rays, which will help us better monitor his or her growth and development, and identify any potential problems, such as cavities or jaw misalignment. Lastly, we'll perform a cleaning of your child's teeth.
If, after the office tour, and chatting with the dentist, your child does not yet feel ready for his or her first check up and cleaning, we'll be glad to schedule an appointment on a different date.
