Pediatric Dentistry

babyAt Kelowna Dental Centre Education and Prevention are the keys to ensuring that your child keeps that happy, healthy smile. Science recommends your child be seen by a dentist within 6 months of the eruption of their first tooth. This allows us to establish healthy habits from the very beginning and to foster a comforting and positive atmosphere that your child will look forward to.

Together we will work toward preventing problems long before they happen.
