What's New at the Office...

We are kid friendly at Dr. Ian Gray's Newmarket dental office.

Our goal is to make each visit a positive one whether 3 or 16, here are something's we do:  

  • Early detection of decay, small cavities are easier to fix and won't develop in to more serious issue if caught early.
  • Prevention is the best medicine, at each visit the hygienist will complete a thorough cleaning, removing plaque and build up. As well as provide a fluoride treatment or sealants as needed.
  • Guidance the hygienist will go over proper brushing technique with your child (and you if they are young) and offer tips and tools to improve their oral hygiene.
  • Habit creating a good positive routine when they are young will help promote a life time of good oral health.
  • Diet Counseling if your child is cavity prone or we see signs of enamel break down (from acid erosion) we will review with them and/or you their diet and what changes can be made to help them avoid the damage and cavities caused by certain foods and drinks.

Our goal is to make each visit a positive one whether 3 or 16, here are something's we do:  

  • Relaxed and informed we will go slowly and explain to your child as we go along what they can expect. We find that kids are much more relaxed, cooperative and have less fear when they understand what's happening.
  • Rewards we have a well stocked treasure box with toys and stickers for young ones and sugar free gum for the teens. It's nice to end each visit with a reward and positive reinforcement.
  • Hygiene aids we have a large selection of brushes, floss, rinses and paste specifically designed for kids to give to you to help them at home.
  • Fun we have a kids play area and iPad loaded with games to keep them entertained while they wait for their appointment. Our monthly Movie Draw is a big hit, each month we pick a winner, who receives passed to Silver City, be sure to enter when you are in :)
