Not All Children Fear The Dentist!

We completely understand that some young ones may fear the dentist, and that’s a-OK! We are here to make your children’s dental visit a memorable and positive experience. Our children’s dentists in Edmonton understand how to deal with the fear of the dentist, so don’t worry because many children overcome their fear after they first visit our office.

Positive dental experiences are our #1 priority when it comes to your kids, that’s why we make it our mission to make sure that your child has a positive experience each and every they come to see us.

What To Expect From Your Child's Dental Visit?

Our dentists are here to take care of all of your child’s preventative dentistry needs, while also looking for and helping treat common chronic childhood diseases related to the mouth, gums, and other common oral problems.

Dental cavities are seen more and more often these days, so that’s something our children’s dentists in Edmonton pay close attention to. Schedule a dental appointment and allow us to take a good look at what’s going on.

Catching Problems At An Early Age

Catching your child’s dental problems is important, but it’s more important to catch them early and get your child proper treatment.

But, in order to get the proper treatment, parents need to take them to a dentist and get them checked out. We take care of kids of all ages, and even infants! X-rays are available and we are more than happy to help your child regardless of their age.

If you make an appointment with us and come regularly for checkups (every six months, or so), you will be able to catch problems at an early stage and help your child maintain great dental health.

Come by our dental office and see what we can do for your kid’s pearly whites!

Even if they have baby teeth, it’s important to keep them clean and healthy until the first tooth falls out. Baby teeth also need dental care, so don’t be persuaded otherwise.

When your child loses their first teeth, that’s a sign of healthy teeth change, so don’t mistake this for a problem. Make an appointment, bring the tooth that fell out, and we’ll take a look at it!

Preventative Dentistry: Children's teeth

Common Oral Health Problems With Kids

There are some problems that show more often in children’s dentistry, and we’re aware of that. Here are some of the problems that your kids may have with their teeth that you may not know about:

Tooth Decay

Tooth decay is one of the most common problems with kids in this day and age. Tooth decay is caused by bacteria that are found in your child’s mouth. These bacteria make a sticky substance called plaque that can eat away at a tooth’s enamel.

Poor oral hygiene can raise the risk of your child developing tooth decay. This is a serious matter, and can cause problems in your child’s development, so our dentists will get right on to it if your child has this problem!


Cavities are parts of, in this case, your child’s teeth that have been permanently damaged by tooth decay. Caries or cavities are easily treatable if the right treatment is applied and if you bring your child in on time and/or regularly.

Dental cavities can lead to serious problems, and that’s a statement that the Canadian Dental Association also agrees with. A big part of being parents when it comes to dental care is caring about cavities and the prevention of them forming.

This is possible only if you have early dental visits that will see the risk and remove the plaque that is impossible to remove by brushing and flossing.

Improperly Cleaned Teeth

Although we all encourage our children from a young age to clean, brush, and floss on a regular basis, there are simply some things that can’t be removed without professional cleanings. That’s why it’s important we also teach our kids from a young age that it’s normal to go and get their teeth cleaned by a professional or a doctor!

Children do not have the same focus and commitment to cleaning, so they often require a helping hand, especially if they got their permanent teeth.

Also, children learn how to properly clean the entirety of their mouth from both their parents and their dentists, so come by our dental office and get your child checked out!

Book Your Child's Next Dental Appointment

Children’s dentistry is easy, as long as everybody does their part! 

Regardless if you’re a new patient of our practice, or you’ve been with us for years, come down to our dental office in Edmonton and let us help you educate your child about the long-term benefits of dentistry and oral hygiene.

Reschedule for every six months, and keep your and your kid’s pearly whites healthy!

Kind words from our Patients

My first visit at Glenwood Dental Care was great! All the staff I encountered on my visit were professional, friendly, caring and took their time to get to know me while providing excellent dental service!

— Meriam M.

Dr. Gao is awesome. Im very impressed with the care she provided on my first day. She explained details to me that my previous dentist did not do, now I have better understanding with what’s going on with my teeth. I would highly recommend coming to this dental clinic 👍

I’ve been going to Glenwood Dental Care for 2 years and can’t say enough good things about them. Dr Gao and her team maintain a professional yet relaxed atmosphere in their office which sure lowered any apprehension I had about dental visits. My questions and concerns are addressed, the appointments are well coordinated and they communicate directly with insurance companies. I’ll definitely continue to use them for my dental work.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have any more questions about your oral health? We’re here to give you a hand. Don’t hesitate to contact our office or book your appointment below to meet with one of our family dentists in Edmonton. 

Our office follows the Alberta Dental Fee Guide. We’ve created the following chart which highlights the most common prices for dental treatment in Edmonton. We want to ensure that we are completely transparent and open about how much we charge for each of the treatment options available at our office.

It really depends on each patient! Typically we recommend that adult patients visit a dentist once or twice a year, even if your mouth is in good condition. This way, you can get your teeth professionally cleaned regularly and maintain excellent oral health.

The most common concerns patients see us for are toothaches — that’s because pain is a way for your body to tell you that something isn’t right. Under the surface, there could be a lot going on. You could be dealing with a variety of dental issues such as decay, gum disease, cracked or worn teeth, or an abscess. We also often help those who have lost or broken a tooth. Before you start overthinking your dental emergency, book your next dental appointment with one of our family dentists today!

If you’re feeling uncomfortable, you should always visit a dentist. Even if the pain does go away after a few days, it’s likely there’s an issue hidden under the surface that should be checked by a dental professional so that it doesn’t linger and continue getting worse. 

The Canadian Dental Association recommends the assessment of infants, by a dentist, within 6 months of the eruption of the first tooth or by one year of age. This helps one of our family-friendly dentists catch potential problems that can affect your child’s overall health and well-being as more teeth grow in overtime.

Yes, we do! If you’re looking for a new, family-friendly dentist in West Edmonton, please don’t hesitate to book your appointment today! We would be more than happy to help guide you on the right treatment solution for your oral health needs.

We’re ready to help answer any additional questions you may have. Please don’t hesitate to contact our office today!
