Kids need regular dental care just as much as adults do. At Hilltop Dental in Duncan, Cowichan Valley, BC, our services can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs, to help keep their smile healthy and happy.
Early Positive Dental Experiences
At Hilltop Dental, we believe children should feel at ease during their dental appointments and enjoy a trusting relationship with their dentist so they can maintain good oral health today and into adulthood.
We provide a vast range of dental services for Duncan, Cowichan Valley kids and their developing smiles and are dedicated to providing your child with the most positive dental experience possible.
We realize that going to the dentist can be an intimidating experience, so we aim to keep the environment friendly, calm, and inviting. We will work at your child's pace, take breaks if they get overwhelmed, and explain each step of the process in language they can understand.
Your Child's First Visit
Babies should visit a dentist by the time they reach six months of age or at a minimum by their first birthday. By this time, the baby's first teeth, or primary teeth, should be beginning to erupt and it is a critical time to spot any problems before they become serious issues.
Dental Services for Kids
At Hilltop Dental, we can tailor our services to meet your child's oral health needs, and help them keep their smile healthy.
Preventive Dental Hygiene
Bringing your child to the dentist for regular exams and cleanings when he or she is young will help protect their primary teeth until they are ready to fall out and be replaced by permanent teeth. During each appointment, we will review appropriate preventive hygiene techniques to help make sure your child's smile is getting the proper care at home.
Restorative Dental Services
If your child is at risk of decay, is experiencing misalignment issues, or develops a cavity, your dentist may also recommend restorative treatments such as dental fillings and mouth guards.
