Dentistry for Kids

Kid’s Dentist in North York and Toronto

At Stonebrook Dental, our main goal is to ensure that each and every child has a POSITIVE dental experience and perspective on dental health. We believe that each child deserves compassion, understanding and patience in life — and in the dental chair. Upon arrival at our North York dental clinic, each child is introduced to our dental team members and our dental equipment using a simple show-tell-do process:

  • We SHOW children what something is,
  • We TELL them what we will be doing,
  • We gently DO or demonstrate the equipment or procedure.
We often involve the parents in assisting us throughout the show-tell-do process to ease children into this brand new environment — thus turning the dental appointment into a positive experience.

When Should Your Child Have His or Her First Dental Exam?

Children’s Dentist Dr. Nubia Diaz and the Ontario Dental Association recommend that all children have their first dental exam by the time they are a year old. This first check-up includes not only an examination of the teeth but also the growth of the jawbones, condition of the tongue, palate, tonsils, throat, floor of the mouth, TMJ (temporomandibular joint), and the lymph nodes of the head and neck.
