COVID-19 Update

Dear McKenzie Towne Dental Patients,

The health and well-being of our patients and our team members is our top priority. We recognize the level of concern and uncertainty surrounding COVID-19. Our office is closed for all non-essential dental treatment indefinitely, but we remain on-call for any emergent dental issues such as swelling, acute pain, and trauma.

If you or a family member has an upcoming appointment scheduled at our office we will get in touch with you when we are back to work to confirm future dated appointments.

As healthcare professionals, keeping you and your families safe is very important to us.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your trust and patience as we continue to work our way through this unusual and challenging time.

Thank you

Your McKenzie Towne Dental Team

How do I introduce my child to the dentist?

Are you thinking it’s time to introduce your little one to the dentist but aren’t sure how to get started?

Here in our dental office, our team works together to make visits comfortable for both children and adults.

Children should begin seeing a dentist within six months after their first teeth have erupted. During a first visit, the dentist and dental hygienist examine your little one’s teeth.

Surrounding structures, such as the tongue and jawbones, and their relationship are also checked. This initial examination is crucial in setting your child up to a lifetime of healthy smiles.

What if children refuse to have their mouth checked?

Our dental team does not pressure young patients if they aren’t ready yet. It’s crucial that they become at ease with us first.

To introduce dentistry to young patients, we use the tell-show-do method. This follows the natural way in which a child learns. They investigate something until they become familiar with it and then use or do it once they already feel comfortable.

Every appointment with you and your little one will take around 30 minutes. Introducing dentistry is made fun and relaxed so the young patients will look at it positively. We’re working with parents to make dental visits stress-free for them and their children.

Children’s dental appointments also give parents a chance to discuss their oral health concerns with the dentist. It’s an opportunity to understand dental care better for your family.

Whether it’s a dental emergency in South Calgary or just a regular checkup or cleaning, McKenzie Towne Dental wants to make your experience as comfortable and convenient as possible.
