Children

Nervous about going to the dentist? Don’t worry! Come in for a tour.

We know it’s normal for children to be a bit fearful of the dentist. Dr. Jaleel invites you and your child to take an introductory tour of our facility to ease the nerves. On this day, touring junior visitors and their parents meet Dr. Jaleel, a practitioner with a warm personality and reassuring approach which makes every visit relaxing, comfortable and fun. We will gladly introduce children to the world of dentistry in an enjoyable environment and help create a positive attitude towards oral health.

 

Why Start Early?

A child’s first teeth usually comes in before one year of age, so it is important for parents to bring their child to see Dr. Jaleel early on so she can:

1) Find out if the cleaning you do at home is working

2) Find problems right away and fix them

3) Set a great first impression with your child so he/she can feel comfortable in future visits

At Fairlawn Dental Centre we are committed to making your child’s first dental visit a pleasant and comfortable one. Our team will provide you and your children with the necessary knowledge and treatment to maintain a healthy smile. We encourage an early start to good oral health care with your child’s first visit by their first birthday. This allows us to identify problems early, share knowledge and plan for a future of happy smiles.

Pit & Fissure Sealants

Dr. Jaleel utilizes sealants. Sealants are a protective barrier bonded to the chewing surface of a tooth. It prevents bacteria from accumulating into tiny grooves on the surfaces of the teeth. This does not eliminate the need for proper dental care but is recognized as an effective and valuable asset in the prevention of tooth decay. The application of sealants does not require anesthetic or drilling of the tooth.
