How to Choose the Best Calgary Children’s Dentist:

If you’re searching for a pediatric dentist in the Calgary area, there are some basic things you should look for before you make your first appointment. The early experiences your child has with a dentist can be a deciding factor when forming oral health habits that last a lifetime. Use our short list of helpful tips in choosing a family dentist every member of your family will look forward to seeing on a routine basis:

- Ask your friends and family for  referral to their own Calgary childrens dentist. One referral from someone you trust is worth a hundred online reviews or testimonials. Make Northern Hills Dental a part of your research as you inquire who is meeting the needs of local families for childrens dental care.

- Your child’s pediatrician can most likely make a good recommendation when it comes to a local Calgary childrens dentist. Make an inquiry on your next child's check-up or call their office and ask the receptionist if their practice can make a referral for you.

- Local directories like Yelp and Angie’s List are reliable places online to find unbiased reviews, by and large, regarding local services within your own community. You may have a preferred directory that you find trustworthy- in which case, stop by their website and type in Northern Hills Dental Care.

- Make sure your dental provider has had had additional residency that includes training for children of all ages. It takes a special type of person to be able to provide dental care to small children, which is why your efforts in researching the right practice is essential.

- Make a call to your prospective dental facility and ask about their opinion on patient education. Your facility should be passionate about teaching young children and their parents how to properly take care of infant and children’s teeth. Don’t leave your child’s first visit to the dentist without securing the following information: How diet and drinks affect your child’s teeth, proper care of infant teeth (when applicable), a demonstration of the proper way to brush, and education for older kids and teens on the proper way to care for their teeth.

- Always consider location in the top 3 priorities of selecting your Calgary Childrens Dentist. While the location of the facility may not seem like it’s important, most patients find that when they fail to take into account how convenient the facility’s location is, they tend to justify missing appointments when they seem inconvenient. Northern Hills Dental is conveniently located on Panatella Blvd in Calgary, so you can easily make arrangements to shop before or after your child’s visit.
