As a family-oriented clinic, our staff is also trained to meet the dental needs of children. Our pediatric dentistry services include risk assessment and preventative dental care.
At Centrepointe Dental, we create a welcoming atmosphere for everybody, including your children. Dental visits are very important in the early years of your child’s life, and we take the time to educate your children on proper oral health, as well as best practices for at-home daily care, like brushing and flossing.

We understand that you may have questions regarding your child’s oral health.
The following is a list of the most frequently asked questions. We’re always here to help provide answers!
What can I do to prepare my child for their first visit?
As a parent, the best thing you can do to prepare your child for their first visit is to display a positive attitude in order to help put them at ease. You can also help familiarize your child with our atmosphere here at Centrepointe Dental by showing them images from the gallery on our website! This will allow your child to get a sense of the environment prior to walking through our doors. Of course, our friendly staff will happily greet you and your child upon arrival, offering peace of mind!
When should my child have their first visit to the dentist?
We recommend booking your child’s first visit when they are between six months to one year old so that we can get a good sense of how their teeth are beginning to come in. For these preliminary appointments, we take an educational approach and shed some light on best practices for easing your child into oral care.
