In our clinic, we emphasize the importance of children’s dentistry. The goal of each of our NW Calgary dentists is to help our little patients develop and maintain great oral hygiene habits that they can carry with them into adulthood. We believe in prevention and pride ourselves in seeing our patients stay cavity-free.
Our friendly team will not only help educate your children but also you the parent so that you can help maintain their good health and can recognize concerns earlier. We typically begin seeing our little patients as early as 2 yrs old to take them on a fun ride on the chair and to take a quick peek in their mouth. This initial visit is more about making them feel comfortable in the office and, of course, the great prize they get to pick afterward.
We never charge for these little visits as the goal is really to make the little ones comfortable in a dental environment. We do recommend that by three years of age (once all of the baby teeth are usually in), we start to see them for regular care visits. It is during these visits we can help them improve and instill good oral hygiene habits so that we can prevent concerns down the road.
Although having straight adult teeth is still years away, there are things we can do preventatively with the baby teeth or as the adult teeth start coming in that can often prevent the need for costly orthodontic treatment years later. Again, prevention is our moto. If we can easily and affordably make small orthodontic corrections along the way, we can help prevent more significant concerns down the road, which will help cut down costs or treatment times for your child in the future.

You may have heard the recent news where Premier Jason Kennedy announced that dental services are allowed to reopen soon. Although May 4th has been announced as the re-opening date, our opening is subject to guidelines approved by our professional regulatory college. At this time, we are awaiting these guidelines which are currently under development and will be released to us, as soon as they are available.
Our goal at Springhill Dental is to ensure the safety and protection of our patients, our community and our team members. To achieve this we will be making sure we are following the advised rules and regulations by our college. As we wait for these guidelines, we have ordered Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for our offices and we are researching and implementing the best practice measures to date.
Stay tuned for more information. Once we know more we will begin to contact you to book your appointments. We know you have all been waiting patiently to be seen and we will do our best to get you booked back in as soon as we can while ensuring that it is done safely.
We will keep you posted on how the new Springhill Dental experience will look like, so regardless of the changes you still feel safe and at home in our practice as you will already know what to expect.
We are excited to see you all again soon! And we are grateful for your continued patience in waiting for us to safely open. Your safety, the safety of our staff and protecting our community is of utmost importance to us.
See you soon!
Your Springhill Dental Team
