Childrens Dentistry

A Family Dentist in Edmonton for Children 3 and Up

Your child should start seeing a dentist regularly after their third birthday, and should continue coming for cleanings and checkups every 6 months. Standard appointments such as these typically last in the ballpark of 30 minutes to an hour. At River City Dental, we are accepting young patients looking for a family dentist in Edmonton and the surrounding areas.

What to Expect from Your First Visit

  • Typically short and involves minimal treatment
  • Consists of an examination of teeth and gums, and possible X-rays
  • We may perform teeth cleaning and apply fluoride
  • We will discuss cleaning and teeth care with parents

How to Prepare for Your First Appointment

  • Take your child to visit the office for a preview
  • Read books with your child about visiting the dentist
  • Talk positively about your own experiences going to the dentist
  • Avoid saying things like needle, hurt and other pain-related words
Healthy Smiles Club

Healthy Smiles Club

After your child’s check-up is complete, if he or she has a “healthy smile” (with no cavities), they get their picture taken and placed on our Healthy Smiles Club wall for the month. The River City Dental staff is glad to have each and every appointment end with a trip to the prize drawer, where your child will be able to choose a special reward for completing the appointment!

When your child visits us for regular appointments, we work to instill healthy dental care habits that will last a lifetime. Education and prevention are our main points of focus, and the most effective way to maintain oral care long-term. If your child is ready to visit the dentist, contact River City Dental today.
