Pediatric Dentistry in Oakville
Central Oakville Dental Care welcomes children. There is usually no need to go to a separate dental clinic for routine pediatric dentistry as our clinic offers services for the entire family. If there is a need for more advanced procedures, we will look after the referral process to a local specialist Pediatric Dentist for that treatment, and then afterwards you can continue your care with us.
What is pediatric dentistry?
Pediatric dentistry is a branch of dentistry dedicated to the oral health of children and teens. Proper dental care is essential for children. Without it, they may experience dental decay and disease which can cause complications throughout their lives.
What kinds of treatments are offered in pediatric dentistry?
There are a wide range of pediatric dentistry treatments available in Oakville including:
Oral health exams for infants, children, and teens.
Preventative dental care including education, dental cleanings, and fluoride treatments.
Habit counseling (such as for thumb sucking and pacifier use).
Treatment for cavities.
Diagnosis and treatment of oral health conditions.
Management of gum conditions such as pediatric periodontal disease and ulcers.
Care for dental injuries.
When should I take my child for their first dental visit?
The Canadian Dental Association recommends bringing your child in for their first dental assessment within 6 months of their first tooth eruption or by the time they are one year old. The reason for this is so that your child can be assessed by a dentist before there are any problems with their teeth. If you bring your child in for a dental visit every six months, then small problems can typically be caught and treated early.
3 reasons to bring your child for a pediatric dental exam
You can discover if the oral care routine you have at home is sufficient.
Your dentist can diagnose and treat any problems early.
It can help your child learn to be comfortable going to the dentist and set them up for a lifetime of good dental care habits.

Great new practice! Very clean space with very kind and attentive staff. I will definitely continue going here for all my dental needs.
Dr. Hathiari has great bedside manner, and is very personable! I have had many bad experiences with dentists and because of that I can be quite nervous. But he was very thorough and made me feel comfortable! I will be happily switching dentists, and bringing the rest of my family in!
