Here at Bloor Valley Dental, we make a child’s trip to the dentist as stress-free and as painless as possible. We understand how important it is for children to develop good dental habits and believe that a positive experience will encourage them to care for their teeth as they grow into adults. Having a healthy and bright smile is important in life and we can help ensure that your child is off to a good start by teaching them proper oral hygiene habits.


The Importance of Oral Hygiene for Children


– Ensures the development of healthy teeth and gums

– Establishing proper oral hygiene habits can help to prevent tooth decay

– Pediatric dental disease is the #1 chronic childhood disease

– Oral hygiene contributes to overall health and wellbeing

– If learned at a young age, proper oral hygiene habits are more likely to stick into adulthood


A comfortable environment


Going into a strange environment can be extremely distressing for a child, causing undue anxiety and fear. We work hard to make our environment friendly and welcoming to your child. Our staff are experienced in treating children and understands how to engage the child while performing dentistry duties such as cleanings and tooth extractions. We always show the child what we are going to do and use and then we do it.




We know that many children fear going to the dentist because of the pain and discomfort associated with the visit. This is why we offer a number of options to make your child’s experience pain free, regardless of whether we are conducting a simple cleaning, filling a cavity, or pulling a baby tooth. This causes your child to feel more at ease and makes it easier for you to bring them into our office. It will also encourage your child to visit a dentist regularly, even as they grow older and move into adulthood.


Our office also has television sets mounted in each operatory as a fun distraction and provide nitrous oxide sedation where needed.




Education is one of the most effective ways to teach children the importance of good dental care. For this reason we take the time to answer the questions your children have and to explain to them about teeth and how important it is to take care of them and keep them clean. We also encourage your child to be curious about their teeth which will induce them to be more conscious about how they care for them.


Parent involvement


Our helpful staff will work with you as a partner in your child’s dental needs, providing you with valuable information so that you can make the right decisions. Together we can ensure that your child will develop healthy teeth that will last them throughout their lifetime.
