The first visit is usually short and simple. In most cases, we focus on getting to know your child and giving you some basic information about dental care. The doctor will check your child’s teeth for placement and health and will look for any potential problems with the gums and jaw. If necessary, we may do a bit of cleaning. We will also answer any questions you have about how to care for your child’s teeth as they develop.

At Parliament Hill Dental, we follow strict guidelines to sterilize reusable instruments before they are placed in an autoclave, disinfect treatment rooms between patient visits and use disposable products when possible.
