Maintaining children's oral health while they're young is extremely important for their life-long oral health, and we'll help them keep their smiles health with services for their unique needs, and oral hygiene guidance.
Hanin Dental Surrey loves working with kids!
Our friendly dental team loves helping our smallest patients keep their smiles healthy and bright. Our Surrey dental practice is a relaxed and friendly place where kids can feel at ease, and are welcome to ask questions.
We offer a comprehensive range of dental services to meet the unique needs of children. From flouride treatments and dental sealants, to kid-friendly brushing and flossing guidance, we're here to help your children keep their smiles healthy, and happy!
When should children visit the dentist for the first time?
We recommend that children have their first visit the dentist when the first tooth erupts, which typically happens around their first birthday.
After this initial exam, we may not need to see them again until the rest of their teeth erupt (around age three).
However, bringing them in for an early visit will help us diagnose, and then monitor and/or treat, any emerging issues.
How frequently should children visit the dentist?
Children should visit the dentist at least twice annually for a routine check up and hygiene cleaning, just the same as adults.
Depending on your child's needs, the dentist may recommend more frequent visits.
Family Appointment Booking
Trying to get the whole family in to the dentist at different times can be a huge hassle!
We want visiting our office to be stress-free and relaxing experience, and so we offer whole family appointments for your convenience.
Sedation for Children
While we make every effort to help our younger patients feel comfortable and relaxed at our office, sometimes this just is not enough.
For children who get extra anxious or fearful about visiting the dentist, we offer sedation for dentistry to help them feel less nervous.
We offer both oral sedation which can be taken leading up to an appointment, or nitrous-oxide gas, which is administered at the time of the procedure.
