THE BRITE BITE
A Safe & Fun Interactive Space For Kids
Our team of pediatric specialists are here to make your child’s visit to the dentist a positive one! Our specially trained team of experts is committed to providing even the most anxious children and parents with a relaxed and rewarding dental experience.
Why Choose A
Pediatric dentistry is the specialty that encompasses the treatment of children from infancy through adolescence. After four years of completing the dental school curriculum, pediatric dentists have an additional two to three years of training to become specialists.
Specialty education includes child psychology, behavior management, sedation, and treatment of children with special healthcare needs.
Choosing to see a pediatric specialist for dentistry is like choosing a pediatrician as your child’s doctor.
In Canada, all dental specialists must be registered with the Royal College of Dentists of Canada (RCDC).
What to Expect From
Your First Visit
During your first visit, we will assess your child’s current dental condition and provide recommendations to optimize your child’s oral health. For most children, this includes a professional dental cleaning. If any dental x-rays are needed, we will discuss this with you first.
Your consultation will include a review of your child’s previous medical and dental treatment, and a review of previous x-rays, if taken. Our doctors will complete a comprehensive dental and oral assessment, take any necessary x-rays, and meet with you in private to discuss treatment options.
At Brite Bite, we strive to exceed your expectations. Many parents do not know what to expect, especially with their child’s first visit. By the time that the appointment is over, most parents are surprised with how well their child cooperated and how positive the visit was.
Parents often tell us that their children are excited to return to our office and we are very happy to receive this feedback.
We strongly believe that you, the parent, have an essential role in your children’s oral health. We pride ourselves in our ability to explain the nature of any dental concerns and treatment options available. We value your questions and opinions, and we welcome your presence in the room during your child’s treatment.
A Place Your Kids
Each treatment area has an overhead television screen and headphones. This will help distract your child from some of the noises and sensations during the visit.
During your child’s visit, they will receive tokens for a prize machine. This is often used to encourage good behaviour and participation during the appointment.
Following your visit, if your child needs any further care, we will review all the information with you and give you ample opportunity to ask questions. We try to make this process informative and engaging.
Every aspect of our facility was designed to create a positive, fun, and safe environment for you and your child. It is fully accessible for wheelchairs and strollers.
Our waiting room features a children’s play area with video games and other toys.
Parents often tell us that as soon as they leave our office, their children keep asking to come back! If you feel your child may be anxious during the first visit, feel free to visit us for a tour of the facility.
