Early Dental Experiences

Your Child's First Visit
Babies should be seen by a dentist after the first six months of age or at minimum by their first birthday. By this time, the first teeth, or primary teeth, are beginning to emerge and it is a critical time to spot any problems before they become big concerns.
Dental Services for Kids
At Collingwood Dental Centre, our services can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs.
Preventive Dental Hygiene
Seeing the dentist for routine exams and cleanings when your child is young will help protect the primary teeth until they are ready to fall out and be replaced by permanent teeth. During each appointment, we will review proper preventive hygiene techniques to help support your child's hygiene care at home.
Restorative Dental Services
If your child is at risk of tooth decay, experiences misalignment issues or develops a cavity, your dentist may also recommend restorative treatments such as dental fillings.
