Regular dental care is just as important for children as it is for adults. At Eckhardt Dental Centre in Penticton, our services can be tailored to meet your child's unique oral health needs, to help keep their smile healthy.
Early Positive Dental Experiences
At Eckhardt Dental Centre, we're committed to helping children feel at ease during their dental appointments.
We offer a complete range of dental services for Penticton kids and their developing smiles, and are dedicated to providing your child with the most positive dental experience possible.
We understand that going to the dentist can be an intimidating experience, so we strive to keep the environment calm and inviting. We will work at your child's pace, take breaks if they get overwhelmed and explain each step of the process.
If your child is especially nervous or anxious about visiting the dentist, sedation options are available.
Your Child's First Visit
We recommend that infants visit the dentist around 2 years of age. At this stage in the child's dental development the baby teeth, or primary teeth, are erupting and it is a critical time to identify any problems before they may become more serious concerns.
Dental Services for Kids
At Eckhardt Dental Centre, our services can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs and to help keep their smile healthy.
Preventive Dental Hygiene
Visiting the dentist for regular exams and cleanings when your child is young can help preserve the primary teeth until they are ready to fall out and be replaced by permanent teeth. During each appointment, we will review proper oral hygiene techniques to help encourage your child to give their smile the care it needs at home.
Restorative Dental Services
If your child is at risk of decay, develops a cavity, or is experiencing misalignment issues, your dentist may also recommend other restorative treatments such as dental fillings.
