General dentists Dr. Cheba and Dr. Mast care for your whole family by offering pediatric dentistry for kids. Our Blackfalds clinic dentists have the specific knowledge needed to care for children’s teeth properly, so young patients can grow up loving their smile (and their dentists!)
Children may be jittery about coming to a dental clinic based on what they’ve seen on TV and heard from others. We understand how they feel, which is why our staff gives special attention to our many young patients. We speak directly to every child, explaining terms and treatments in ways they can understand.
We also take steps to make children’s dentistry appointments a positive experience. Putting a familiar show on the overhead TV will relieve anxiety while one of our dentists looks over your child’s teeth. Kids even get cool sunglasses to wear so the overhead light doesn’t bother their eyes. And they’ll be happy to receive a toy after the appointment is through!
We’ll make absolutely sure your child enjoys the appointment and feels comfortable.
As dental professionals we believe in preventative dental care and encourage our patients to bring their children to the practice from an early age. Regular check-ups from a young age will ensure children won’t suffer from untreated dental decay with devastating effects to their growing dentition. Fluoride applications are a safe and effective way to safeguard your growing child’s teeth from developing decay. The fluoride is painted onto the surface of the child’s teeth and this helps to mineralize the teeth. Fissure sealants are tooth colored and applied to biting surfaces of teeth to prevent decay. Studies have shown that the younger the age that you bring your child to the dental practice, even if just for a check-up, the more likely they are to have a positive experience and grow up not to be afraid of the dentist. Our team will take special care of your child to make them feel safe and cared for.
