The Canadian Dental Association recommends children are seen around age 1 (or within six months of the first tooth coming in) for their first dental visit. Oral tissues are assessed for normal development, and your dentist will explain how to properly care for your child’s teeth. An early visit also allows the child to familiarize themselves with the dentist and prevents dental anxiety at their next visit. Please do not wait until your child’s teeth are discolouring, or your child is in pain.
We work closely with all insurance providers to ensure you get reimbursed promptly for all covered dental treatments. Usually, the amount will be reimbursed within 24-48 hours when submitted electronically. We are able to send estimates for all treatment to your insurance provider prior to treatment as well. Most dental services for children are covered by the RAMQ.
