It is recommended to take dental x-rays as they help the dentist and hygienist to detect issues that are not visible to be naked eye. Many diseases and conditions can only be detected with the use of dental x-rays. They allow dentist to detect diseases and other conditions much sooner than the clinical examination alone.AT WHAT AGE SHOULD I START BRINGING MY CHILD TO THE DENTIST?
It is important to get an early start on dental care, so that your child learns that visiting the dentist is a regular part of health care, and to help us set them on the right path to great oral hygiene. The CDA (Canadian Dental Association) encourages dental visits within 6 months of the eruption of the first tooth or by one year of age.DO YOU ACCEPT DENTAL INSURANCE AND ASSIGNMENT OF BENEFITS?
As a courtesy to our patients, we accept assignment of benefits, meaning we bill directly to your insurance and you must only pay the balance.HOW DOES THE WATERLASE LASER WORK? HOW CAN IT BE PAIN-FREE?
The Waterlase combines water, air and laser energy for safe use on human tissue in the mouth. Our teeth are partially made up of water and when the laser makes contact with the tooth it excites the water molecules to cut through the tooth. Since the laser continuously sprays out water it keeps the tooth hydrated preventing heat and giving you a virtually pain free experience!HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Our fees follow this years fee guide outlined by the ACDQ (Association des chirurgiens dentistes du Québec)I'M REALLY SCARED OF DENTAL VISITS. IS THERE ANYTHING YOU CAN DO TO HELP ME RELAX?

A dentist's first obligation is to your health. If you have an issue in your mouth, the dentist will present treatment options to meet your oral and general health needs. Your treatment plan is not based on your dental plan coverage. Your dentist can help you get a pre-authorization for treatments to help you understand what costs may be covered by your dental insurance, however it is important to make your treatment decisions based on your health needs, not based on what your dental plan covers.WHAT DENTAL SERVICES DOES RAMQ (MEDICARE) COVER FOR CHILDREN?

The early stages of dental disease do not have any symptoms. Dental disease is not reversible, so prevention and early detection is extremely important. Dentists are trained to catch early signs of dental conditions and stop the progression of disease, preventing small problems from becoming larger ones.▲ TOP
