Our goal at Cook’s Bay Dental is to provide positive dental experiences for all of our patients, young and mature alike. Creating a positive dental environment is extremely important for children as these early experiences will dictate future attitudes and behaviours towards dentistry. Our philosophy is to start good habits at a young age by embracing prevention and encourage the maintenance of a healthy and beautiful smile to last a lifetime.
Dr. Mandelbaum Smith has always enjoyed treating children of all ages. Besides happily welcoming children into her office for their first dental visit and regular dental appointments, Andrea successfully treats patients as young as 3 or 4 years old for common procedures such as fillings and extractions. We also manage childhood dental trauma when needed.
Without proper dental care and early diagnosis and intervention of dental disease, children face the possibility of oral decay and disease that can lead to pain and infection triggering a cascade of lifelong dental complications. Cook’s Bay Dental boasts a child friendly environment which puts both parent and child at ease.
Our child-friendly features include:
- A children’s play area
- Televisions overhead during hygiene and dental visits with age appropriate programming
- Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) mild sedation options
